Former Manchester United and Northern Ireland international goalkeeper Roy Carroll joins Ben Dinnery, Johnny Wilson and Stel on this special edition of The Late Fitness Test.

Roy talks about how a change in playing style contributed to the groin injury he sustained after returning from Greece having played out there for 3 years, the difference playing in a warm climate makes when recovering from existing injuries, and the mental strength required when playing week in week out as a goalkeeper.

We also hear about Roy is recovering from an ACL injury and the goalkeeping school he has set up in Northern Ireland.

Johnny shares his views on Bournemouth's knee injury jinx and the mental fatigue some clubs face that causes them to concede late goals, which is followed by a discussion on Winston Reid's long term injury and Troy Deeney's decision to play through the pain barrier despite requiring a knee operation.
