Coulson eyes another return

Coulson eyes another return

Barnsley's young striker Michael Coulson is determined to get back to fitness after injuring his knee yet again.

Speaking to the Scarborough Evening News: 'We were having a match in training, the keeper dived and took me out. It was snowy as well, so the fact that I slipped a little won't have helped. It didn't feel too bad at first but my knee has swelled up a lot since then. I just need a new knee to be honest because I've had enough trouble with this one to last a career.'

The 20-year-old seriously damaged his knee last year and has only just got back into the mix at Oakwell, but the former Scarborough front-man insists he'll back in less than two months:

'I went for a scan and they have booked me in for an operation to shave my cartilage and have a look around. I've been told that it could be another four to six weeks before I can get back playing.

'I was involved against West Ham in the FA Cup earlier this month and I have been on the bench for a few other matches since I returned from my first injury. That is where I want to be again by the end of the season, and I'm confident I will be.'
