BENNETT’S COMEBACK PROMISE
JULIAN BENNETT has vowed to aid Southend’s promotion push this season – if he returns from a serious knee injury in time.
The 29-year-old has been sidelined since last August with cruciate ligament damage but, with the Shrimpers firmly in the play-odd picture, the defender says that he is desperate to get back and be involved again.
“We’ll have to wait and see how quickly I can get back to full fitness but I would love to play some part towards the end of the season if it’s possible,” said Bennett.
“When you are in the gym every day and spending time on the treatment table it does get to you but once you get back out running you immediately feel more involved.”
