Currently out of contract and still fully recovering from his knee injury, Carlos Edwards made a 45 minute return to the pitch in a behind closed doors friendly on Monday against AFC Wimbledon.

With the 36 year old not having played a game for just over ten months it’s obviously a good milestone for him to have got and come through the first half of the game as he continues building himself up following the injury he sustained back in September 2014 in the game against Nottingham Forest.

Speaking to the official site he was obviously pleased to be back out there.

‘I feel good. It came to the point in pre-season where I had to get my first run out and give the knee a good test. It’s really good to be back out playing with the guys and trying to get some minutes under my belt. We have had to go from step one to step two and progress from there. To get out the treatment room is relief because at the end of the day you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I went to see the surgeon and he was happy for me to start pre-season. I couldn’t look back and here I am today.’

Alfie Pavey scored for the club during the friendly game.

Edwards no doubt is still a fair way off a first team return, but having overcome this hurdle and come through it well he’s at least closer now and then a decision can be made on a new contract as talked about previously by manager Neil Harris.
