Knight-Percival Update

13 July 2015

Defender Feels His Recovery Is Going Well

"We’re way ahead of schedule at the moment but you have to take it day by day," he said.

"You have to wait until it feels right and it doesn’t feel the same as it does before I did it last season.

"So it’s so hard to give a definitive time limit but hopefully I should be OK in a couple of months’ time."

"Iit was probably more frustrating last season because I didn’t get to play at a crucial time of the season.

“Now it’s nice join in with the rest of the lads and I can drop in here and there with them so it’s been quite fun in that aspect.

“Last season I was missing games so it was disappointing, but now it’s not too bad because I know they’re only training and playing friendlies."

And Knight-Percival insists it is important to continue to make steady progress ahead of a full return.

Recovery from a cruciate ligament injury usually takes around 8-9 months.
"We’re not joining in with everything the other lads are doing well but we’re dropping into sessions here and there and it’s good to get loads of good work done.

"It’s hard to say at the moment (how close we are to match action) because of the amount of fitness work we’ve done.

"Fitness-wise I feel fine but you have to have so much time after the operation and then so much time getting back into full training.

"So it’s hard to say but maybe in a couple of months I should be ready."

"It’s going well (the recovery)," said Knight-Percival.

Knight-Percival, nicknamed Rolls-Royce by fellow Town players for his consistent displays, has been on the road to recovery ever since and, along with Wesolowski, and admits he and his Australina team mate are way ahead of schedule.

The 28-year-old had to come off in the 1-1 draw at home to Southend United in February and it was revealed he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury.

Defender Nathaniel Knight-Percival feels his recovery from injury alongside James Wesolowski is coming along well.
