Worrall on mend after swine flu

Bury midfielder David Worrall is trying to win back full match fitness, having ended up in hospital after succumbing to swine flu over the festive period."I was just drained, really ill," said Worrall, who made his comeback as a late sub in Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Accrington, after missing three games. [LNB]"I had my mum babysitting me all the time, making me tea. [LNB]"I went to the doctors and had a bad turn, so she sent an ambulance for me, and I was in there for a few days." [LNB]Bury manager Alan Knill and his assistant Chris Brass are looking to find ways of ending a run of just one point from their last four league games, which has seen the Shakers drop to sixth in the League Two table. [LNB]But Worrall admits that it might take time to build up his match fitness. [LNB]"The gaffer and Brassy are keeping an eye on me and making sure I'm making my way back into it slowly and just getting the food down me," he said. [LNB]"I didn't train for two and a half weeks and then I was meant to go straight into the gym. [LNB]"I've lost a lot of weight and, knowing the size of me already, I can't afford to lose any more so I'm just trying to put it back on." [LNB]Worrall began his career with the Shakers in 2006 before moving to West Bromwich Albion in a £50,000 deal. [LNB]But he made just one start at The Hawthorns before returning to Gigg Lane in August 2009, initially on loan, via short spells at Accrington and Shrewsbury.
