Zoltan Gera admits that he is happy to have overcome the injury problems that hampered him last season.

Zoltan Gera has expressed his happiness at forcing his way back into the West Bromwich Albion squad.

A succession of injuries limited the Hungarian international to just two appearances for the Baggies last season.

However, he returned to the starting lineup against Liverpool on Saturday, scoring a goal in the process.

"Last season was very difficult," he told reporters. "So there was extra motivation for me to come back and play again for the club.

"It's a great feeling to play for the club and win the game in the way we did on Saturday.

"I still feel I need more game time, more minutes on the pitch, and then I will be fitter than at the moment."

The 33-year-old joined West Brom in 2011 from Fulham.
