No rest for Paul as he looks to return to full fitness

Paul Taylor is stepping up his recovery from a foot injury that kept him on the sidelines for much of last season. 

The 25-year-old striker sustained a broken bone in his foot during the defeat by Wolves in September and had to undergo surgery with a metal plate inserted to help fix the injury. 

While the rest of the first-team squad are enjoying a break from the game, the former Peterborough frontman, who joined Blues in August 2012, is being put through his paces by Town fitness coach Andy Liddell and first-team assistant physio, Alex Chapman. 

“Tayls has been at the training ground virtually every day, working on his fitness with Lids,” Alex told the Club website. 

“He’s been doing a lot of running and is kicking a ball as well and hopefully he will be ready to join the rest of the lads for the start of pre-season.”

Blues return to training in the last week of June and will then spend a week in Ireland, playing Shelbourne on July 6 in the first friendly of the summer.
