Downing To Do The Business

Last updated : 06 January 2010 By Footymad Previewer

Martin O'Neill has backed wing wizard Stewart Downing to shine towards the back-end of the season.

Downing only returned to action in late November after a long -term lay-off with a foot injury sustained prior to his £12million arrival from Middlesbrough in July.

And although the 25-year-old winger has shown glimpses of form since then, O'Neill believes there is more to come as his wide man regains full fitness.

"I have been very, very pleased with him," O'Neill told the club's official website.

"I still think, even though he has played a number of games in quick succession with no respite, that he is not fully wound up yet.

"But he's given everything. When he is fully wound up, he will be really excellent for us."
