Liverpool defender Kelly confident over knee woes

Liverpool defender Martin Kelly is delighted to be over his knee woes.

Kelly's main aim now is to get as many minutes under his belt as possible as he targets a return to his best form in order to challenge for a first-team place.

"It was good to get the first 90 minutes under my belt after so long," Kelly told Liverpoolfc.com.

"I played last week in a behind closed doors friendly but to get 90 minutes for the U21s was superb for me and my fitness.

"I just want to get as many games in as I can. I missed so much last season and it's difficult mentally coming back from 11 months out and knowing you are not where you were last pre-season, because I started the last pre-season flying and that's where I want to get back to."
