Last updated : 13 January 2004 By Site Editor
Speaking to the Official Club Website, the former Everton, Manchester City and Oldham boss admitted that the return of McGreal and his high standard of form was very much a bonus for the club: "Two months ago John's career was in the balance after the injury problems,"

"He had the two major knee injuries and his back problem so to come back from that as he has is excellent. John has been a real bonus for us and I'm delighted to see him back playing again."

Meanwhile McGreal is also pleased with his comeback, and is glad his injury nightmare is over after a difficult start to the season: "I was just about at the end of my tether at that stage and didn't seem to be getting anywhere. The injection seems to have done the trick, though, and now I'm enjoying being back playing again."
