Cameron Pring Keen to Secure a Starting Spot

On-loan Bristol City defender Cameron Pring has spoken ahead of this weekend's League Two clash with Exeter City, and admitted he is pleased to have made his return to action following a spell on the sidelines.
Pring, who has made just twelve first-team appearances since arriving in WS1 in the summer, hadn't featured in the team since the Saddlers' FA Cup draw with Darlington in early November, but he returned to action against Macclesfield at the weekend.

The 21-year-old went on to reveal that ankle and knee injuries were responsible for his spell on the sidelines before expressing his desire to keep fit and help the team to continue the recent spell of form which has seen the Saddlers edge away from the relegation zone.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Cameron said; "I feel good to be fair. It’s been a frustrating period for me but hopefully I can stay fit now and get a run of games like I managed to get at the start of the season.

"It is frustrating for me because I have come on loan to Walsall to play games and constantly being on the sidelines with an injury is frustrating. It’s good to see the boys doing well and hopefully now that I am back fit, I am in a team that is doing well and I can help keep us on this good run.

"I used to be a winger so I really like getting forward and to be fair I have got enough pace to get back and defend so having that attribute helps me out a lot. I had an injury on my ankle to start with but then I recovered from that but I developed a pain behind my right knee.

"I think that developed because I was running a bit heavier on my right side trying to compensate for my left ankle because I didn’t want to put much pressure on it. I got a sharp pain behind my knee every time that I ran but it’s all good now."
