Curtis Davies returned to competative football today in a behind closed doors friendly against Notts County.
The surprise inclusion was certainly not expected as most believed he wouldn't be back in action until October, even if his rehab had been going well over the last few months.
Speaking on the official site after completing 60 minutes of football, he said:
'I feel great. It was a good game to get 60 minutes in. I felt I could have played the full 90 but I'll take it slowly, one day at a time and see how I come through it.
'I've been looking at the new shirt for ages and just waiting to pull it on, so it was good to be back out there - albeit in a behind closed doors game.
'I felt comfortable and I didn't hold back. Hopefully now I'll get another game soon and I can start to put a bit of pressure on Martin and Zat.'
