Hull City's club captain Ian Ashbee retains some hope of being able to return to action before the end of the season, as he continues his recovery from long-term injury.
The 33-year-old midfielder is back in training with the Tigers squad, having not featured at all this term due to a knee problem which has required two rounds of surgery.
He told the Hull Daily Mail: "We take it week by week, but of course I want to be able play and push for a place. I've got hopes of playing again this season.
"I'm sure my hopes might be different to the physio's, but we'll have to come to a compromise in between somewhere.
"It doesn't get any easier watching from the side and if I can help even one per cent more in any way it'll be worth it
"No footballer enjoys being injured, but I can't do anything about it. I just have to look to do things right and get on with it."
