OLD­HAM cap­tain Adam Lock­wood says he is sick of swimming and des­per­ate to get back on the foot­ball pitch as his re­turn from in­jury moves closer.

Lock­wood dam­aged his knee in a pre-sea­son match against Bar­row in July and is yet to fea­ture for the first team this sea­son.

The de­fender, who was ap­pointed club cap­tain dur­ing the sum­mer, is close to re­turn­ing to light train­ing but re­mains cau­tious about the in­jury.

“I’ve had to take weight off my foot so I feel like I’ve turned into an Olympic swimmer,” he said.“I’m hope­fully start­ing on a tread­mill next week, so I hope it re­acts well to that.”
