Kightly keen to contribute

BY foxsports • April 5, 2011

The winger made his first appearance in almost 17 months when he came off the bench in Saturday's 4-1 Premier League defeat at Newcastle. The 25-year-old underwent surgery to repair persistent knee problems before Christmas and feels in good shape. Kightly told the club's official website: "I feel brilliant and the operations seem to have done the trick. I was blowing a bit on Saturday but that fitness will come back with games so hopefully I can get some more minutes soon. "I don't feel as if I'm holding back or carrying anything and hopefully it doesn't look that way - I feel fine. "There's still a lot of football to play so it would be nice for me to come in and help the lads stay in this league because that's what we want."
