Matty Fryatt is worried that it could be a “step back” for him if he is back at Hull after his one-month Hillsborough loan.

The striker who equalised in the 1-1 draw at Barnsley says that he has enjoyed his time with the Owls and has gained the matchplay that he needed.

But his concern is that a return to Hull would not give him first-team football.

He said: “I’ll probably just be training again and not playing. That’s not going to benefit me.

“You need to be playing. You can do everything in training but it’s not the same as a game. It’s completely different.

“It’s really hard to figure out where you’re at, because you can feel great in training, but when it comes to the game, you think ‘wow, I’m so far off it’.

“I’m getting it back and, if I were to go back and there be nothing at the end of the week, it’d be a step back.””

Dave Jones is hoping that the loan can be extended after talks with Hull.. He said: “We spoke to him (Fryatt). It will be down to the chairman and the finance and what we can do.”

When asked what he would like to happen, Fryatt said: “ I honestly don’t know. That’s between the two clubs but so far I’ve enjoyed my time here and it’s just a shame I haven’t, so far, been on a winning team.

“There are good signs. We just need to turn these draws into wins. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time, so hopefully it continues but we’ll wait and see.”

He also thinks that he is “not quite” back to his best: “ Fitness and gameplay take time to get going again. It’s a long time to miss, a year of football.”
