Carl Cort is looking to help NASL champions Tampa Bay Rowdies achieve more success in 2013.

The former Newcastle United and Wolves striker, who scored a crucial goal in the second leg of the NASL Soccer Bowl Final last season, is back from a calf injury and feeling primed as the Rowdies embark on their title defence campaign.

"It's good to be back. I feel as good as I can be. I've got my calf sorted out and I'm feeling fresh," said 35-year old Cort.

"My goal for this year is to continue as I left off last season before I got injured. I was feeling good both physically and mentally and I have been working hard to regain my fitness level."
