PETE SAYS HURT IS OVER AFTER TWISTED COLON

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

PETER CLARKE found his lat­est stom­ach-churn­ing in­jury hard to di­gest after be­ing di­ag­nosed with a TWISTED COLON.

The Black­pool de­fender lost more than a stone after suf­fer­ing the freak knock to his in­tes­tine against Wat­ford last month.

But after rest and treat­ment, cen­tre-back Clarke has avoided the need for surgery.

And he is in line to re­turn from a four-game ab­sence against his old club Hud­der­s­field on Satur­day.

The 32-year-old re­vealed: “I felt pain dur­ing the Wat­ford match, and felt ill af­ter­wards.

“But it took a while to iden­tify ex­actly what had hap­pened.

“I’m feel­ing a lot bet­ter, I’m back in train­ing and des­per­ate to play.”
