McSheffrey: Hoping to stay injury free

The fit-again forward, 30, was recalled for only his fourth league start at Brisbane Road and played a hand in David McGoldrick's winning goal before spurning two opportunities to strengthen City's advantage.

Ahead of three successive home fixtures, McSheffrey is keen to begin finding some rhythm.

"I am really happy with the win and we have showed a bit of steel at the end to get the three points," he told City's official website. "We should have had the game won by half-time really as I have had a couple of opportunities which I should have scored from.

"I was quite pleased with my own personal performance and it is great to be fit again and get on to the pitch. It has been very frustrating when I haven't been playing and the season has been very stop-start for me.

"I just want to get five or six games now to get fully match fit and really get myself into this season. I want to be in form and firing for the side as much as I can."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
