Onward Christian

Although still out for some time, Christian Dailly is making excellent progress in his battle to return to fitness.

"Christian is doing fine; he was probably two thirds of the way through things last week and the plan is in these next couple of weeks for him to start running on the knee," says John Green.

"It is almost devoid of swelling now, which is good, as we need to get it dry of any swelling before he can start running.

"Because of the type of person he is I don't think it will take him long to get fit; he won't have lost a great deal of fitness.

"I would say it will be five to six weeks before he is back playing."
