Nottingham Forest centre-back Kelvin Wilson is fully fit once more and reveals that he feared for his career when he suffered a serious back injury.

Kelvin Wilson has revealed that he thought his professional football career might have been over when he suffered a serious back injury last year.

The Nottingham Forest centre-back is ready to play again for the Championship club after almost a year out of action.

He aggravated his back injury in November last year and then tore his calf in pre-season earlier this summer, extending his spell on the sidelines.

"I had a really horrible back injury and it really did scare me," the Nottingham Post quotes Wilson, 29, as saying. "I thought it would finish me. I had conversations with the physios, asking if it was it for me. More than once I asked them 'am I done?'.

"They always tried to keep me confident, they were always confident.

"But there were days where I could not walk. There were times when I could not even stand up straight, never mind play football."

Wilson also conceded that he knows he might have to wait for his chance to get back into the team as Stuart Pearce's side are top of the table thanks to an unbeaten start to the season.
