Striker praises hard work of the Club's medical staff and admits he can't wait to be back playing at Portman Road again

David McGoldrick has revealed he is ‘buzzing’ to make his Portman Road return, if selected, and has thanked Town physios Matt Byard and Alex Chapman for their work in helping return to fitness.

The striker is in line to make his first competitive appearance at Portman Road since he suffered a knee ligament injury against Blackpool back in February, as Town welcome Fulham to Suffolk at the weekend (kick-off 5.15pm, live on Sky).

Didz could be in contention to feature after working hard on his fitness and appearing during Town’s final two games of pre-season, with the striker quick to praise the medical staff at the Club.

“Matt and Alex have been fantastic with me and I owe a lot to the hard work they’ve put in with me,” Didz told the Club’s official YouTube channel.

“All throughout the summer Alex has been looking after me and we went to Philadelphia together as part of my rehab. I think Alex was starting to get a bit fed up seeing me every day!

“But in all seriousness he was great with me and was with me every step of the way and I’ve got to thank both him and Matt because they are good physio’s and good lads too.”

Now the striker is hoping to be involved against Felix Magath’s Cottagers and can’t wait to be back on the famous Portman Road turf.

“It’s been a while since I’ve played at Portman Road, the last time was February 17th when I got my injury,” added the former Forest man.

“Obviously it’s up to the gaffer but if I am involved then it will be nice to get onto the pitch at some stage and play in front of our great fans again.

“They’ve stuck by me throughout the injury and it would be nice to pay them back with a successful season. I can’t wait to get going now and I know the lads feel the same.”
