Garner Aiming For Reserve Game This Week

Garner Aiming For Reserve Game This Week

Joe Garner's battle with injury is nearing an end, as he hopes to make his comeback from a knee injury this week in a game for the reserves.

He hasn't so much as kicked a ball since joining from Carlisle in the summer and has been out of action since last February. It's been a frustrating time for the hit man, but he can at least now see light at the end of a very long tunnel.

Garner told the official site. 'I'm getting nearer and nearer to playing again and I'm pencilled in for a reserve game very soon. But although it can't come quickly enough, I know that I've got to be sensible and disciplined about my comeback. After being out for so long I just want to make sure it's the first and last major injury I have in my career. I might be itching to get out there with the other lads but I will know in my own mind when I am ready for it.'

There's no denying that we're desperate for his services, but we could be expecting too much from him so soon after such a serious injury. It will take time for him to get up to full match fitness and that's not a luxury we have at present. It's four games since we've found the back of the net, so his return will be welcome. I just hope we're patient with him and that he's given the time to acclimatise to the Championship.
