Sears looking to make up for lost time in season run-in
Freddie Sears is eager to make up for lost time and play his part in the crucial last quarter of the season.
The former West Ham striker is back fit and raring to go after recovering from a cruciate ligament injury sustained in the derby defeat at Norwich a year ago.
He came on late into the game against Oxford on Saturday to make his seventh appearance of the season - all as a substitute - and with James Norwood out until April after surgery and Kayden Jackson starting a three match ban at this weekend’s visit to Blackpool, Freddie joins Will Keane as the only front line strikers available for Blues.
“I’m fine now. I’m training well and just need minutes on the pitch. When that comes along hopefully I can deliver,” Freddie told the Club website.
“I’ve been out a long time and just want to be involved now as much as I can and make up for the time I’ve had out of the game.
“There is a lot of football to play still this season and I’m aiming to contribute in any way I can for the team.”
