Greg Cunningham: Back from injury

Greg Cunningham: Back from injury

The left-back recently spent three months on the sidelines with damaged ankle ligaments but he has now made a full recovery.

The Irishman was a first-half replacement for Matthew Bates in the Robins' 2-0 home defeat to Derby on Saturday and is now looking to help his team-mates turn around their recent fortunes as they face the prospect of four games in 11 days.

Cunningham told the club's official website: "I want to get back to the level of performance I was showing before my injury. I trained the week before the Derby game but I did feel a bit rusty out there.

"The result was obviously disappointing because we wanted to push on from the win at Sheffield Wednesday.

"We created a few chances but it just didn't go for us. We have to forget about the defeat and move on to what is a big game against Ipswich.

"The Christmas period is always hectic as a footballer with games coming thick and fast, but it will obviously be good for me to get some more game time and hopefully the team will get back to winning ways.

"We need to try and get as many points on the board as possible so we can move away from the relegation zone because we don't want to be there."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
