There was good news this week for midfielder Jamie Hanson who stepped up his recovery with his first couple of sessions back on the pitches at the Training Ground
The former Derby player tore his hamstring in the very last minute of the game away at Fleetwood but told iFollow that he is starting to see real progress right now.
“It was great to get outside and running again” he told iFollow. “Amy and the medical team have been fantastic and I have been able to make decent progress but it was a change of scenery to be out on the grass again on Monday. It was just straight line running for now, nothing too tough, but it went OK and there was no reaction so hopefully now we start to make real progress.
“The injury was just unfortunate. We were losing and someone broke clear so I raced back to tackle and just felt it go as I got a toe on the ball. I knew what I had done immediately and looked up at the ref to ask how long was left. He said ‘20 seconds’! I will always give it everything but can't beleieve my luck with that one!
“But it’s going OK now, even if we are still talking a few weeks before I am back: I’ve set myself a little target of Shrewsbury, which is the first week of December, but I’m feeling positive and maybe it will be before that. Malachi is in the treatment room with me every day, Fordy and George Thorne as well, and we are all trying to be positive. Hopefully it won’t be too long until I am back in contention.”
