Hull City goalkeeper Allan McGregor says that he is eager to prove his fitness in the final league game of the season against Everton at the KC Stadium.
McGregor has played an instrumental role in helping the Tigers to beat relegation and book an FA Cup final date against Arsenal this season but he has been unavailable since March.
The former Rangers man sustained a kidney injury during the 2-1 loss to West Ham at Upton Park on March 26 but he has been working hard to try and put himself back in contention.
McGregor said: “Obviously it’s up to the manager whether or not I play, but I hope to be up for selection. I’ve been doing a lot of work with [goalkeeping coach Gary Walsh] and I feel good.
“At any time when I’m injured, I always give my all to get back as quickly as possible. The games that are coming up don’t make any difference. I’ve never really set myself a target in terms of coming back. I’ve just been taking it a day at a time and seeing how it feels. So far, it hasn’t felt too bad.
“It’s been a really good season and I think we’ve done well. Obviously there are areas that we can improve on, but every team will be saying that. We’ve done well for our first season back in the Premier League and we need to build on that.”
Hull are priced at 4.12 to claim the FA Cup and thoughts around the club are already geared towards the club’s first ever final on May 17, despite Sunday?s game with Everton.
The Scotland international is hoping that he can put in a solid display against the Merseyside outfit and give boss Steve Bruce a headache in terms of selection for the trip to the national stadium.
