Slowly Getting There

When you're coming back from a long-term, serious, injury it is always going to take some time to get back to your best isn't it?

Scott Laird is one such player that is doing this, however he does feel he is getting there slowly...

The fullback missed six months of last season having broken his leg but has got five league one games under his belt this season.

He's training hard and trying to get back to his best but he knows it's still a way off and is asking for the fans to give him time to get there.

Laird told BBC Radio Lancashire: 'I'm slowly getting there.

'I'm working hard in training and in games to get where I was last season. I keep asking the fans to be patient with me, but it's coming.'

He concedes (as said) that he is not quite at his best but feels he is getting close and has to keep on his toes as David Buchanan is ready to step in but this is giving him extra incentive to keep pushing on. Ultimately he hopes that this can help spur Preston onto league one success and get them a place in the championship!

Four goals in 24 games before his injury was a very good return for a fullback, he scored his first since his return in the weekend win over his former club Stevenage.

Unfortunately he got caught up in the moment and celebrated, which he wouldn't (as most don't) ordinarily against his former side but it was more relief at scoring again as his continue from injury moved on.

Once Laird gets back to his very best he'll take some ousting from the side...
