Carl Cort might have enjoyed his fullest season's activity in six years, but he has still been advised to sharpen up his act.
Cort looked a risky investment when Wolverhampton Wanderers paid £2 million to end his injury-ravaged four seasons with Newcastle United 16 months ago.
Despite a hamstring problem at the start of the campaign and a thigh injury that marred the end to his season, he has stayed relatively injury free at Molineux.
But manager Glenn Hoddle has put him on a strict exercise regime under fitness coach Kunle Odetoyinbo to ensure that he reports back fully operational for preseason training in early July.
"I know Carl's had his fair share of injuries but he's been on a good run and this latest one isn't anything serious," said Hoddle.
"I remember he had a slight hamstring problem in my first game at Watford but he recovered pretty well after that and he has just got to make sure he comes back properly next season.
"By all accounts he picked up a hamstring after about three days of pre-season so he obviously didn't do what he was asked to do in the close season. He's had to sit down with Kunle and myself to go through what he needs to do this summer."
Cort is highly pleased with his season's tally of 16 goals from 40 games, easily his best term's work.
"It has been a good one for me," he said. "It's been my first proper full season for a while and I'm delighted with that, let alone the 16 goals.
"With Kenny Miller scoring 20 goals, that's 36 between us and that's a good return as a
pair. As a striker you also tend to look back at the chances that have been missed, but we're happy with what's been achieved."
