Striker Jimmy Spencer is confident he can put his injury disappointment of last year behind him and told the media his knee and general fitness is great ahead of the new campaign…
The former Huddersfield Town man suffered a long-term injury in the first pre-season friendly last term and is now focussing on looking forward and getting a full six week pre-season under his belt.
He did admit the heatwave this week has made the sessions even tougher.
He told Magpie Player: “The first couple of days have been tough, but i’ve prepared myself right and that’s helped me.
“The Yo-Yo tests was hard, especially in the heat, over 30 degrees, but I think the lads have done well and it’s nice to see the balls out on day two.
“The heat is hard, my head felt like it was going to blow up! I’d preferred to have done it in the rain!
“I’m can’t wait to get the season started. I feel good. I feel like I’m getting fitter. My knee is fine and stable. The rest has done me good and it feels better than it has.
“I just want to get into the games and push on this league. We are definitely capable of promotion and we have a really good chance, if we can get everyone fit and stay sharp, then we will have a real good go at it.”
