West Bromwich Albion Scott Sinclair reveals that he is hopeful of returning from injury against Cardiff City at the weekend.

West Bromwich Albion winger Scott Sinclair has revealed that his sole focus is on returning from a two-month layoff to feature against Cardiff City on Saturday.

Sinclair has played just six times since joining the Baggies on a season-long loan deal from Manchester City, but the attacker has insisted that he isn't worried about his future as he prepares to play his first game since September.

The 24-year-old told the Express & Star: "I've been out for two months. I had a very bad pull which I did at Manchester United but I've been getting back to 100%. Hopefully I can be right for the weekend.

"After playing 120 minutes in the 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 haven't thought about my future. The only thing that I'm concentrating on is playing for Albion. 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."

Sinclair could earn a place on the substitutes' bench as West Brom look to bring a halt to a run of five matches without a win.
