Jamie O'Hara has vowed to win his fitness battle to take part in the FA cup final.
He says that the bone bruising has been 'pretty painful' for him and it 'inflamed' with him playing so many games. With him also playing through the 'pain barrier' it got to a point where enough was enough.
Nothing will stop him from playing against Chelski, something he says he would do even if he had to with one leg, though: 'I was trying to play through the pain for the past month or so, but it got to the point where I just needed to rest it.
'It's not going to be 100 per cent for the final, but I'll go out there on one leg if I have to. I'm not going to miss out on this game.'
O'Hara, who of course returns to Spurs - for who long remains to be seen - after the cup final, has likened himself to a boxer in training for the big fight: 'I will try to get myself right. I'm a bit like a boxer at the moment - I'm resting until two weeks before and then I will really crack on and get myself right for the game.'
Quite clearly the guy is not going to play against Wolves this weekend, although it would be good for him to be able to get some playing time under his belt against Everton in our final game - then again this 'might not' be essential, yet you cannot beat competitive action to test an injury can you?
We know that we will get nothing short of 100% from Jamie but as much as he does deserve his crack at playing in the cup final, as he has been fantastic for us this season and looks as though he will stroll away with most player of the year awards, any undue risks cannot be taken can they?
That said 'calculated risks' are of course worth taking in the FA cup final really, and O'Hara will 'probably' be one of these.
It most certainly sounds like Jamie 'Rocky' O'Hara is going in with the 'there aint no stopping me' frame of mind...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
