Chelsea captain John Terry admits he is still being troubled by a rib injury as England prepare for their Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro next week.

Terry missed the first two matches in Group G, against Bulgaria and Switzerland last month, with a hamstring problem. But he also bruised his ribs during Chelsea's win over West Ham last month and the 29-year-old has revealed he is still in a lot of discomfort.

"I take elbows in the ribs in a lot of games but it is one of them where I have a bit of bruising and the masseurs can't get into it because it is too sore," Terry said.

"I had an X-ray and a scan and thankfully it came back all clear. It is a case of getting on with it but sneezing and coughing is really painful."
