Leon Haslam says he is carrying a troublesome shoulder injury to the seventh World Superbike round of the season at Misano, but insists it won't affect his riding.

The British rider went for a scan on the shoulder after suffering with it in Malaysia, with doctors revealing he has aggravated a former injury following an accident at Imola.

Despite this, the PATA Honda rider is certain it won't affect his riding at Misano as he looks to give his flagging season a significant boost.
