Jessica Ennis-Hill says her recovery from injury is going well and admits that her main target for 2014 is to win gold at the Commonwealth Games in Scotland.

The Sheffield heptathlete was unable to compete at this year's World Athletic Championships in Moscow due to injury but insists that she has put this disappointment behind her.

As for the injury, she told Sky Sports News after attending the launch of the Sky Academy: "It's nice to get back into running and training, and developing things week-by-week.

"But my Achilles is definitely on the mend."

With regards to returning to top-level competition, the 2012 Olympic champion added: "I'm still hoping to do an indoor season but I'm just taking each week as it comes.

"The World Indoors (in Poland in March) are a possibility but it's not 100%.

"I'll see about that when I get back into full training but definitely the summer season and the Commonwealth Games - especially being in Glasgow.

"The Commonwealth Games was one of my first senior championships in 2006 in Melbourne and it's an incredible multi-sports event.

"It's the next best thing after the Olympics and being in Glasgow will be particularly exciting."
