Zoltan Gera: Thrilled to be back following serious knee injury

The Hungarian has been sidelined since suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury against Queens Park Rangers in January.

But he played for an hour as the Baggies' U21s went down 1-0 against Arsenal, and was thrilled to get back on the pitch.

"I ran onto the pitch with great excitement because I had the chance to play again after a long time," Gera wrote on his own Facebook page.

"It's true it was just an Under-21 game but at the moment this is a great forward step for me.

"In the first five to 10 minutes I was short of breath but then I could get used to the speed of the game and felt I would be able to run until the following morning.

"Originally I was to play 45 minutes but in the break I begged for another 15 minutes. Today (Friday) I do my regeneration on a bike."
