Portsmouth midfielder Richard Hughes is doing his upmost to remain positive in spite of a catalogue of injury setbacks.
Hughes is back on the treatment table in a bid to rehabilitate a fractured shoulder.
The injury is just the latest in a long line of setbacks which have restricted the player's involvement under Harry Redknapp.
But Hughes is taking consolation from the relatively minor nature of the injuries even if they are a major frustration to the 26-year-old.
"If my hamstrings were going or I had groin strains or things like that, then I'd be more concerned these injuries are just freak accidents," said Hughes.
Hughes has made 23 appearances for Pompey this season and has been considered one of the first choices for the Fratton Park outfit when fit.
