Midfielder James Morrison has been speaking of his hopes of featuring in the final two games of the campaign following his return to fitness.

Having made an Under 21 return and felt no ill effects in recent times, Morrison is now hoping to feature in both the Bournemouth and Liverpool matches as West Brom close out the 2015/16 season.

Having ruptured his hamstring in the game against Chelsea back in mid January, the Scottish international is now looking to get some good game time under his belt – especially with contract talks stepping up as he returned to fitness.

Speaking to he explained.

‘I played last Tuesday for the U21s at Derby and I came through well and felt good. It`s been a really frustrating spell for me because I didn`t imagine it would take this long to get back. But I was desperate to play I had a little setback early on. So I`ve taken things very carefully since then to make sure I was 100 per cent recovered. I`m there now but of course it`s all about match fitness and the only place you can get that is out on the pitch.’

Morrison went on to say that in many ways competition for places is now harder than it was when he went out injured.

‘You can take nothing for granted because you`ve not only got the established players doing well but now we`ve got some talented youngsters just as keen to play. I feel like I`ve got a lot of football in me but there are only a couple of games remaining. I just want to get back on the pitch.’

Morrison could also be the next player to hit the 300 club and follow Chris Brunt with that milestone, and he also spoke briefly about the contact negotiations.

‘I`ve mainly been focused on getting fit again. Talks have been on-going but we can sit down at the end of the season and iron it out.’
