NOR­WICH skip­per Se­bastien Bas­song is cer­tain he’s won his fit­ness bat­tle in time for Satur­day’s cur­tain-raiser at home to Ever­ton.

Now he’s hop­ing Ca­naries boss Chris Hughton feels the same way.

The for­mer Tot­ten­ham defender had a knee op over the sum­mer but is back in train­ing now.

He said: “I was strug­gling for the last three or four months of last sea­son so we man­aged it well to get me through.

“I had the op­er­a­tion and ev­ery­thing went fine. I’ve had my re­hab and I’m back on track.

“My pre-sea­son has been a bit dif­fer­ent to the rest of the boys but I feel I’m ready. It’s down to the gaffer whether he feels the same.

“I know they don’t want to take any risks so we’ll see. It’s a big week. We all want to be ready for the start of the sea­son.”
