Webster steps up recovery after ankle surgery and is hopeful of a return to action before the end of the season

Adam Webster is hopeful that he may play for the Town first-team before the end of the season as he begins to step up his recovery from ankle ligament damage. 

The 22-year-old defender, who missed the final three months of last season with an ankle injury while at Portsmouth, underwent surgery in January after rupturing his ligaments in training.

“The boot has come off now and I can start doing strengthening work and looking to get back to full fitness from here,” said Adam in an interview in the matchday programme for last night’s game against Wolves.

“The first couple of weeks I had to stay at home. I was in a cast and couldn’t get around. That was the hardest time. The last two weeks I have been in the gym every day and doing pilates as well and that has definitely helped. You feel like you are making progress.

“Hopefully I will be back in full training two or three weeks before the end of the season. That’s if everything goes according to plan. I’d like to get a chance to play if possible, I’d love that but it will be down to my recovery and the manager of course.”
