Notts defender Julian Kelly to try Ryan Giggs yoga trick to end hamstring woes
JULIAN Kelly is going to take a leaf out of Ryan Giggs' book and start yoga in a bid to end his hamstring woes.
The Notts County right-back, 23, says he is sick of suffering the injury, having just returned from it once again after eight weeks on the sidelines.
He has been hit by hamstring problems throughout his career – and has done it twice since moving to Meadow Lane.
He missed the end of last season with it and then did it again at the end of September, after starting the first nine league games of this season.

He finally made his comeback in the Magpies' 1-0 win against Swindon Town in League One and hopes he is back for good this time.
"I'm going to give yoga a go – I will try anything to stop it happening again," he said.
"Giggs always used to do his hamstring, but he's never done it since he started it.
"If it works for me like it has him that will be great because I want to be fit and playing every week, not sitting in the stands depressed."
Kelly lasted 81 minutes on his return against the Robins and is now targeting a start in the FA Cup second round tie at Rotherham United.
"Eight weeks is a long time in football, a very long time, so it was good to be back out there," he added.
"I haven't been out for this long since I've been here so it's been really hard.
"I would have been back a bit sooner, but I had a little setback.
"I have a few hamstring problems and I hadn't really recovered from one from the end of last season. But hopefully it's all behind me and I'll be back for good now."
