Freddie to boost Hammers

17 Apr 2008 - 08:01:20

West Ham United have been boosted by the news that Freddie Ljungberg could be fit to face Derby County at the weekend.

The Sweden international joined the lengthy injury list at Upton Park after picking up a hamstring problem in last month's 2-1 defeat to Sunderland.

But despite fears the 31-year-old could miss the rest of the season and maybe even the European Championship finals, Ljungberg is hoping to return against the Rams on Saturday.

"The injury was a little weird, especially since it was quite painful," he said.

"It was quite hard for the medical team to diagnose, but I've been told it was an inflamed nerve. Luckily, the hamstring is not injured, which is great.

"The extra work I put in this winter, in the gym, is the reason I am in good shape.

"Despite being in some pain due to a nerve-root inflammation, the hamstring itself is fine and there is no sign of a pull or strain."
