'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Pre Toffees: Oba back

Once again we speculate on the availability of Oba Martins ahead of Sunday`s massive Sky Live game against Everton. Chris Hughton believes that the Nigerian will be just about ready to return after commencing proper training in the last week. Our current manager said:

'It's a big boost to see him back training and in contention again. He's a quality player in a really important position as well. When you look at the quality he's got and the threat that he poses to teams, it makes it all a big plus for us.

It`s not just Oba. It's important that the first-team group can look around on the training field and see other quality players around them. Of course, with people like Cacapa and Alan Smith now back in the fray and having completed reserve team games, and players like Mark Viduka, it boosts everybody.

Whether they are fully fit or not, it's important to have around. It adds to competition and lifts spirits.'
