Sinclair: I must kick-start my season with West Brom

The attacker, on loan at the Baggies from Manchester City, struggled to assert himself last season and has been sidelined since September after moving to the Hawthorns
Scott Sinclair hopes to return to action for West Brom this weekend after missing nine matches with a hamstring injury.

The on-loan Manchester City forward has only been able to make six appearances for Steve Clarke's side since arriving in August, but he feels ready to make his mark against Cardiff City.

After a frustrating campaign at the Etihad Stadium last year, Sinclair was hoping for chances to impress at the Hawthorns but his involvement was curtailed by an injury in September - and he is now keen to kick-start his season.

He now aims to return for their trip to South Wales and re-launch his West Brom career.

"I've been out for two months," he told The Express & Star. "I had a very bad pull which I did at Manchester United but I've been getting back to 100 per cent. Hopefully I can be right for the weekend.

"After playing 120 minutes in the (League Cup) Arsenal game, I then went into the United game and pulled up after 10 minutes. It was one of those frustrating things.

"But I'm looking forward to playing against Cardiff. I have a lot of catching up to do. I need to hit the ground running. Hopefully now, I can crack on and build on from there."
