Wildig admits he's relieved

Aaron looking forward to being back in action

Aaron Wildig admits it's a relief he should be back in action much earlier than initially feared.

The midfielder was worried he was facing a long term lay off after suffering a knee injury in the recent home game against Notts County.

But then a scan revealed it was bruising on his bone and Wildig, told the news by physio Chris Skitt, now hopes to be available for selection for the festive games.  

"Obviously it's disappointing to be injured but it's good news," said Wildig. "Over the weekend it happened I couldn't really walk but come the Monday and Tuesday I was limping about a bit and I felt more positive towards it.

"I went for the scan in Chester on Thursday and thought I was going to get the results on Friday so I was a bit anxious about it when it didn't come.

"Then Saturday morning Skitty texted me but didn't say what the results were. He said ' let's talk business' so that was a bit worrying when he said that, but he likes to wind people up!

"But the outcome was good news in the end."

Wildig added he was surprised the Notts County player involved in the challenge which led to him being stretchered off, Andre Boucaud, escaped with a yellow card.   
"I thought it was a red card at the time," he said. "As soon as I got back inside I asked if he had been sent off. 

"To be fair to him, he came to see me afterwards and apologised. 

"I don't think he intentionally wanted to hurt me. I think the ball was there, I've got a little touch to it, and he's lunged and caught me on the straight leg quite hard, but I don't think it was intentional."
