Alex Jones Talks Return To Side

16 November 2016

After three weeks out of the side with what many expected to be a long-term injury, Alex Jones made his return against Fleetwood Town.

The striker, who is currently on loan from Birmingham, suffered a scare in preparations for the game against Oxford United.

It was expected that the striker would be out for a long spell, but it wasn’t as bad as first thought and he only missed three games.

The clubs top scorer was back in against the Cod Army and was on the score sheet, grabbing the winner late on and he was happy to be back.

He said: “I was delighted, I’ve been out for a while and I was buzzing to be back about there and buzzing to get winner, it’s a great feeling.

“I think whenever you injure your knee it’s always a bit worrying for everyone but it wasn’t as bad as first thought thankfully.

“I went back to Birmingham and I was assessed and there wasn’t any serious damage done so it was juts a case of letting it settle down and getting back that sharpness and getting back in the team.”

Despite being back in the side, Jones admits he isn’t back to his best yet and will continue to work hard to get back to where he was.

“I feel ok, I felt better than I thought I would, but I don’t feel as sharp as I was before I got injured, but that will come with training and the next few games .”
