Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross is hoping to return to action against Chelsea this weekend.
Shawcross has not played since the end of February when he was sent off after a challenge on Aaron Ramsey which broke the Arsenal midfielder's leg.
The big defender was forced to serve a three-game ban and an ankle injury saw him miss nother five matches after the suspension.
Shawcross is now back to full fitness and he is determined to erase the memories of the infamous challenge on Ramsey.
"I want to get back and write some good headlines and start playing well," Shawcross told Sky Sports News.
"Sometimes these things are sent to test you. Obviously I have had a difficult couple of months with the injury, but hopefully I can get fit and get playing."
Shawcross also played down talk that Tuncay's strop at being substituted during last weekend's defeat to Bolton could see him marginalised by the rest of the squad.
Potters boss Tony Pulis had warned Tuncay that he could be in for a hot reception from his team-mates after his latest act of petulance.
However, Shawcross insists the whole squad remains behind Tuncay as the Turkey ace knows he was wrong to charge down the tunnel after being subbed.
"Tuncay is a fantastic player and he has done well since he has been here," added Shawcross.
"Obviously I think he knows he was wrong.
"When you come off whether you have played well or played bad you need to support the team and I think he knows that.
"We are fully behind him and hopefully he will put in a good performance on Sunday."
