    "I was at Derby obviously and I was quite gutted as I was doing pretty well and playing quite often. But, yeah, it was just in training and it’s just one of those things, I suppose. I’m staying positive, trying to remain positive, as I’m still young and it’s just a minor setback. I’ve still got so much time on my hands. I was quite positive from the start really. It took a day to have a scan. I came back to the club to have the scan and, like I say, it put a downer on things because I was doing quite well. But, as soon as I had the scan, I tried to get my head around it straight away and just crack on from there.

    "It’s frustrating not to be with the lads on the pitch, to have a bit of a laugh and obviously play football. It’s difficult but I try to see the team as much as I can and go to games and watch training as well.

    "I’m working really hard at the moment. I’m not trying to put a time frame on it or rush anything. It’s just one of those situations where I’m trying to get back and do my thing. I’m mostly doing work in the gym. I’m working with John Davin, who is a great character and he’s very uplifting. The first stages of my rehab have been pool and gym-based but hopefully, in time, I’ll be out on the grass.

    "I think, for anyone, it’s tough to come back from this sort of setback. It depends how you look at it. Like I’ve said a few times, I’ve taken the positives out of it and just not tried to rush anything. I think I’m doing quite well really. I can see progress between what I am like now and what I was like after surgery so I think I’m in the right place at the moment. The game has changed with modern science and surgery and recovery. It’s all different. It’s all changed and it’s new. Twenty years ago, it could have been a career-ending injury but I know, in this day and age, it’s just something that happens. I’m staying positive and I am really looking forward to getting back"
