Striker is fit and raring to go Coventry City striker Lukas Jutkiewicz says he has recovered from the minor injury he sustained and is looking forward to Saturday's M69 derby game against Leicester.The 21 year old striker is due to return to full training today after being out for two weeks with a knee injury picked up taking a penalty against Derby.Jutkiewicz said to the CT: "I have been really looking forward to getting back to training this week, especially as we will be preparing for such a big game in these parts." "Fingers crossed I will be back in the side for that because I know what a massive game it is. I have got old school friends who are Coventry and Leicester fans and I know what it means to them, and hopefully they will be coming to the game to watch me.""Obviously being at Everton you don't get much bigger than the Merseyside derby but I am sure this game means just as much to the fans down here."Jutkiewicz has been the penalty taker for City since his arrival from Everton, but he is keen to show City fans he can score from open play as well as from the spot."Strikers are always judged on goals so I don't mind how they come, but it would be nice to get a couple from open play," said Jutkiewicz."A lot of people have asked me if I picked up my knee injury against Derby when I took the penalty. I certainly didn't feel any pain at the time but I did shortly afterwards when I was running about, so I am not sure."// ');// ]]>"I was really disappointed to miss out on the Millwall game which the manager felt was a bit too soon for me and thought I would benefit from more rest to make sure it was absolutely right, but big Clive came in and did a great job. He's a real handful for any defence and he's a good player to have in the squad."
