York City's David McGurk sets ten game fitness target
TEN games is the marker David McGurk wants to put down before he believes he is finally over his injury frustrations.
The City stalwart returned to action in the 2-1 defeat to Mansfield after recovering from a hamstring niggle.
The 30-year-old suffered the tweak in the 0-0 draw with Hartlepool last month and has found it difficult to string a run of games together since recovering from throat and knee problems two seasons ago.
But McGurk is now optimistic that he is about to find some momentum and believes if he can get into double figures, he will be able to put his frustrations firmly behind him.
“I just want to stay fit, get a run of games, and I feel like I can get better and better and hopefully stay in the team,” he said.
“I am confident I can perform to the best of my ability if I am fit. I am getting niggles and I think, if I could nail down ten games, I could kick on from there. At the moment, I am getting to three and four games and I keep getting that little niggle.
“They are not keeping me out for long but they are enough to disrupt me. It’s coming back into the team and not being 100 per cent match fit. Then I have to start all over again and it is frustrating the life out of me.
“I have just got to keep strong mentally, because it is tough, and there’s no better feeling than coming and playing on a Saturday and winning, hopefully.”
