"I think it was actually a blessing in disguise for me as I haven’t missed out on any football and it has given me an extra three or four months to get my ankle right"
Tristan Nydam is targeting a return to match action in October or November as he continues his recovery from injury.
The 20-year-old missed the entire 2019/20 campaign after suffering a fractured ankle and ligament damage during a pre-season friendly with Notts County at Meadow Lane just over a year ago.
“My ankle feels so much better than what it did before lockdown,” Tristan told the Club website.
“Due to the restrictions in place, I haven’t been able to use the gym so I’ve been working in the dome with the physios.
"It’s been a tough time but I've tried to stay positive. I think lockdown was actually a blessing in disguise for me as I haven’t missed out on any football and it has given me an extra three or four months to get my ankle right.
“With the league starting a month later than usual, it gives me more time to get back in the swing of things. I hope to be back on the grass by then though I’m not sure if that will be full training as it might be a bit too soon.
“I’ll be hoping to play some sort of games, whether that is 23s or first-team by October-November time.”
