Nico Gibson feels he is just about back to full fitness as he and his Edinburgh City team-mates prepare to face Stirling University in the South Challenge Cup tomorrow.
The City striker missed a large chunk of the first half of the season through injury, but following his midweek brace in City’s 3-0 win over Spartans, the ex-Aberdeen youngster believes he is almost back in his peak condition.
“I’m nearly back to my best now,” said Gibson. “I missed the game last Saturday, then got a good run-out on Wednesday so I’m nearly back there now. I’m over my injuries so hopefully the next half of the season – the important part – I’ll be more involved.”
Spartans will be hoping to bounce back from that Image Printers Cup defeat to the league leaders when they play Vale of Leithen at Ainslie Park.
