Scotland international John Fleck made his return from injury for Sheffield United on Sunday.
The midfielder hadn’t featured since at any level since October’s international fixtures, the Sheffield United battler last playing 72 minutes against Slovakia on October 11.
He picked up a muscle tear though before the next Blades match and hasn’t featured since. That was until Sunday, where he played 90 minutes for Chris Wilder.
It was another painful day for Sheffield United, who lost 1-0 to West Ham as their horror start to the Premier League season continues.
For Fleck though it would appear he is over his injury trouble that ruled him out of November’s international matches.
Steve Clarke’s side managed to secure Euro 2020 qualification with a penalty shootout victory over Serbia earlier this month.
Now the race to make Clarke’s team for a first major tournament since 1998 is on. Fleck will be keen to regain his place that he has worked hard for.
