Striker Jamille Matt has said he feels as though he has a point to prove at Highbury in 2015-16 having missed last season through injury.

Having suffered his setback in the pre season friendly against Partick Thistle on home soil during the pre season campaign last summer, he was ultimately ruled out of action for the entire season and our first year in League One, and he’s now fit and out to make a point and show he can compete at this level.

Speaking to the Official Site the former Kidderminster Harriers man who has made 42 appearances for us, with a return of 13 goals since coming into the club back in January 2013, explained.

‘It`s good to focus and be back in and amongst the lads rather than coming in early and being in the physio room for hours on end. One of my dreams is to play as high as possible. I was looking forward to playing in League One last season so to get that taken away from me was tough.’

He went on to say that it was a very hard and difficult 12 months for him, but he feels he’s used the time well and grown mentally over the period, so he’s looking to put that into practice now on the pitch this year.

‘The past 12 months hasn`t all been about fitness, as conditioning and other kinds of things come into play. The medical staff have looked after me well so I want to repay them for the support they’ve shown me over the past year or so. All of the lads know what pre-season is about and the hard fitness work that comes with it. We all need to see what levels we`re at and push on from there.’

He ended his interview by explaining.

‘I feel like I`ve got unfinished business here and need to prove myself. Like I say, I want to repay people; the chairman, manager, chief executive and everyone else.’
