Forte Raring To Go After Recovering From Injury

12 February 2016

Forward Jonathan Forte is back in first team contention after recovering from an injury which ruled him out for over three months.

The striker had knee surgery at the start of September to correct a problem but is now raring to get back into action.

He said: "I’m all well and good now. It’s only been two games that I’ve played since returning from injury but I’m getting there.

“My pace is fine but it’s just about getting match fit now.”

Wigan Athletic are the opponents tomorrow afternoon and he believes it will be a tough test: “They are a good team and are near the top of the league,” commented Forte.

"We know we can always get something from these games. They have a decent team but we have got good players as well so it should be a good game.

“Obviously we need the points but we have the games in hand so if we win those games we are back right in it.”
