The Scot played 71 minutes for the Under-21's yesterday and is eager for a first-team return...
Coventry City midfielder Danny Swanson has admitted he cannot wait to get back to first-team duty after returning for the Under-21’s yesterday.
The Scot, who signed from Peterborough in the summer, hasn’t played for the first-team since September’s 2-0 defeat to Preston.
But Swanson, who has made ten appearances for the Sky Blues, managed 71 minutes for the Under-21’s yesterday and has expressed his delight to be on the recovery trail.
“It’s good to be on the road back,” Swanson said.
“I felt good in the game, although it was obviously very hard in the second-half due to the lack of matches.
“I’ve had the injury before but when I had it previously in my career I had been out for longer.
“I can’t praise the physio team enough, they’ve really helped me get back to fitness and I’m dieing to get back. It feels like ages ago since I played with the first-team – we need all the bodies we can back so I’m pleased to be almost there.”
The Sky Blues took a young Under-21’s side to Huddersfield yesterday and Swanson was one of the more experienced players in the side that lost 1-0.
The former Dundee United man praised the work ethic of the side despite the result, particularly against a team with plenty of experienced Championship players.
The midfielder added: “To be honest we probably didn’t deserve a point but everyone worked so hard for the cause which is what we want to see.
“I had a great chance in the first few seconds which I should’ve scored, but we had a young side and they had plenty of experience, so there are many positives to take.
“Most of the boys had played on Saturday, so it’s a credit to them especially against a team with Championship players.
“Overall I’m delighted to get back, I’m really eager to get back to help the boys out and we need everyone at the moment.”
