Danny Andrew targets return to first team squad

Defender back in action after groin injury

Fleetwood Town left back Danny Andrew hopes he can now knock on the first team door after returning to training after over a month out with a groin injury.

The 24-year-old, who has yet to play under new manager Steven Pressley, has been on the sidelines since the end of September.

The former Peterborough man has made nine appearances so far this season for the Cod Army, and he is hoping to build on that tally very soon.

“I am feeling good,” admitted Andrew. “I have played a couple of development games now and hopefully I can get back into the first team set up.”

Andrew completed the full 90 minutes against Preston North End in a development match on Tuesday afternoon at Springfields.

Commenting on the game, Andrew said: “Preston are a good side. We got told ahead of the game that they were going to be playing their first team squad so we knew we were in for a tough match.

“At times we did cause them problems as well as what they did to us.”

Now focused on the visit of Swindon Town this weekend, Andrew is hoping he can push fellow left back Amari’i Bell for a starting berth against the Robins.

He concluded: “I had a good week’s training last week but I wasn’t involved with the squad for the trip to Peterborough as it was a bit too soon for me.

“I played the full 90 minutes against PNE and hopefully with a good few days of training later this week I can be pushing Amari’i Bell for the left back spot.”
