The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

KEVIN Daw­son says start­ing a match for Yeovil Town for the first time in over 14 months gave him goose­bumps.

The mid­fielder, 25, was in the start­ing line-up in the Glovers’ 1-0 win at Mans­field Town last week­end, his sixth ap­pear­ance since his longterm ab­sence.

Daw­son ini­tially in­jured him­self in the FA Cup third round de­feat to Manch­ester United on Jan­uary 4, 2015 – and it’s cer­tainly been a long road back to full fit­ness for him.

He first had a hip in­jury and sub­se­quently suf­fered a groin in­jury.

“I had goose­bumps walk­ing out for it and I was re­ally look­ing for­ward to it,” he said

“I knew the night be­fore so I was able to get my mind ready and was happy to com­plete the whole 90 min­utes.

“I came off the pitch in pain, but good pain.”

Now he wants to play a big part in help­ing Yeovil push up the League Two ta­ble.
