Carr nearing fitness

Posted on 6 February 2001  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Stephen Carr is raring to go again after a six-week stint on the sidelines.

The Irish star limped out of the clash at Southampton on December 27 and has been forced to rest to repair a damaged groin since.

But rehabilitation is going well and our current Player of the Year admits he is desperate to return to action.

Wednesday night’s massive FA Cup tie at Charlton may come too soon for the wing-back but he revealed: "I’m back training now with the reserves and so far, touch wood, it’s going okay.

"I wouldn’t say I’m 100 per cent fit yet but I’m not that far off it.

"I feel good within myself and it’s then all about getting the injury out of your mind, getting warmed up fully and getting ready to play.

"Of course, it will be different going into a game because I haven’t played in six, seven weeks but I feel good within myself."

Carr, a picture of frustration at Spurs Lodge in the early days of his injury, certainly hates not being out there.

He said: "It’s not nice missing games because I played a lot of games on the run and I’m not usually injured.

"I’m usually due an injury, one a season like last time, and it makes you appreciate how much the game means to you. I can’t wait to get back and get back up and down that line."
