Amid the club's current injury crisis, forward Victor Anichebe confirmed he is close to full fitness after struggling with multiple injuries.
The former West Bromwich Albion striker arrived on a free transfer last month, but has dealt with thigh and groin injuries. Anichebe came off the bench against Crystal Palace in Week 6, but admitted it wasn't the smartest decision given his ongoing recovery: "My thigh and my groin are fine. The first game I came back I wasn’t as ready as I should have been but I was happy to try and help the team if I could...It is just about getting games and power into me and hopefully with a combination of first team training games and reserve games, which I am happy to play to get back quicker, I will be fit and ready to help."
