With Bobby Zamora sidelined there is a certain expectation about the return to the fold of Andrew Johnson.

The forward, who has been troubled by injury in recent times, is yet to start this season but his comeback doesn`t seem too far away.

It`s been confirmed that Johnson is back in training and that it`s only a matter of time before he makes Mark Hughes first team squad.

Watching his progression, in training, has been Simon Davies who also had to endure a long recovery road after picking up a foot injury last season.

Speaking about AJ`s progress, Davies had this to say on the official site,

‘He’s looking sharp.”

‘I’ve been talking to AJ a lot because I was out for a long time last season and he was asking me, ‘did you feel this tired when you came back?’

‘When you first come back in, the adrenalin gets you back training and then you realise how hard that is every day. Then come the games, you can train as much as you want but you need the games, whether they’re reserve or First Team games, to get the minutes under your belt and get your confidence back.”

‘You build up and get your strength and stamina back from that. The main thing is that his knee isn’t giving him a problem so if we can get him back fit and firing he’ll be like a new signing”


He certainly will and if we can get a front three of Bobby Zamora, Andrew Johnson and Moussa Dembele all fit together, we`ll be awesome going forward!
