Pirates: Masters confident he can improve form
10:06am Tuesday 12th June 2012 in Sport
SAM Masters vowed to pull out all the stops in a bid to rediscover his form after admitting he had returned too soon following injury.
The Pirates doubling-up star has struggled to replicate his early-season Poole performances since tearing a thigh muscle.
After an impressive start to the 2012 campaign, the 21-year-old registered four points and then one point in recent home wins over Wolverhampton and Swindon.
But the reigning Premier League riders’ champion, who doubles up with Somerset, is confident he can keep progressing once he regains full fitness.
He told the Daily Echo: “It was going well at the start of the year and then we had a few rain-offs so the racing slowed down a bit.
“In my first meeting back after about two weeks off, I got injured and hurt my leg so that kept me out for two-and-a-half weeks.
“I have only done a couple of meetings since my leg has been injured and, personally, I think I came back too early.
“I had a difficult one the other day (against Swindon) but it will all come back good.
“I have just got to keep plugging away and I think by the end of the year, I will have had a good year if I have kept progressing.
“It is hard to race when you are coming back from injury but I am getting confident now that my leg is getting better.
“I am just sorting out my engines and then I will be on a roll.”
