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.”
