Gary No Longer On Gardnering Leave

Gary No Longer On Gardnering Leave

Gary Gardner has returned to training after a long seven months out with the second cruciate ligament injury of his career.

It was originally expected that he would be out for 9 months, so to return this early is a huge boost for the youngster as he again looks to make up for lost time.

Tweeting:

'After seven months of hard work, first day back training today! What a feeling! Hard work pays off! Time to kick on thanks for all your support!'

Ok, maybe overkill on the exclamation marks but who can blame him when he's effectively two months ahead of schedule here.

It would be a surprise to see him back in the first team really as you'd expect it to take him longer than that to build up proper match fitness but who knows, even better if he can maybe get some pitch time before the season closes.

Hopefully the training will be steady and he'll suffer no complications though, as many hoped he would kick on this season, so it's vital he's fit and raring to go for our next campaign.

Lambert could bang him on the bench for the last game or two of season to give him a little push and make him work harder over the summer...

Welcome back Gary. Can't wait to see how the lad gets on under Lamberts management.

Westwood and Gardner could be the future core of our midfield provided they both bulk up so we aren't pushed around.

If hes training now he should be more than fit inside a month, that puts him in contention...rather put him on in a game than say, KEA

Great news for the midfield. Hope this is the end of the injury issues that have spoilt his career up to now. Pretty sure he'd have been a regular fixture in the middle of the park this season without the injury.
