"You don't know what you've really got until you are tested". "It's a big thing to play for this club, but so far he's on a great track, he's given himself the best possible chance to fulfil that".

'The same problem came back on the Sunday of that week in training, so then I had the procedure the following week, which I went through and now it's totally fine and I'm clear.

"I'm totally fine now, took a bit of time to get over". At least I could decide and not be forced because of that, so I was determined to get back fit. "I've been training hard and we'll see what happens for the rest of the season", said Carrick.
