Marcus Hall Looking For Injury Free Season

Marcus Hall, Coventry City FCMarcus Hall is aiming for his first injury free season for two years as he pushes his claims for a regular first team place for the Sky Blues.

The local youngster looked set for a meteoric rise to the top of the football world when he won England under-21 and B caps, but then his career came to a juddering halt as he hit serious injury.

He suffered a niggling groin injury that kept him out for several weeks and then fell victim to a knee injury, which required major surgery.

"My medial ligament came away from the bone at the side of the kneecap," he explains. "I was playing in the first team and no one was near me when it happened.

"The specialist has had to reattach the ligament to the bone with a metal staple and I have had to lay off heavy training during the summer to allow it to heal properly.

"I missed most of the pre-season training but I have now played three reserve matches and I am feeling really fit again. I felt a slight twinge after the first comeback game, but now I feel nothing.

"I am looking forward to an injury free season in the hope that I can really push on with my career by winning a regular first team place."

Hall could get his chance against Leeds United at Highfield Road on Saturday. Left-back David Burrows is serving the final match of his three-match ban for a sending off and Hall could fill the slot.

He has played in several positions on the left side of the team and even in the centre of the back four, but he says:

"I consider left back to be my best position."
