BEN THRILLED TO BE BACK

11 September 2019

“It was great to be involved in the first-team back then and obviously I want to get back to that level"

Ben Folami is targeting a return to the first-team squad after making his comeback from long term injury in the U23s' defeat by Nottingham Forest on Monday.

The 20-year-old striker, who made four appearances for the first-team in 2018, has been out for eight months with a ruptured achilles but came safely through the first hour against Forest.

“I didn’t expect to play that long because I didn’t think I’d last that long to be honest,” Ben told the Club website.

“I got through it with no problems and I’m really pleased. Touch wood that will be it for injuries for a while.

“There has been no reaction to playing on Monday and I’m all good to go now.

“I’ve obviously got to build my fitness levels up; look to get my sharpness back and then push on from there.

“It was great to be involved in the first-team back then and obviously I want to get back to that level. It’s down to me to impress the gaffer and take my chance if it comes along.”
