Tom Huddlestone has joined Ledley King back out on the training pitch after recovering from a knee injury.
The midfielder sustained the problem in his first reserve outing for the club against Watford a few days before the Premiership season started but he has been back out in the September sunshine - although the weather has not been completely to his liking.
"I tweaked my medial ligament in the knee and was out for three weeks exactly," he reported. "I am back in full training now and the knee feels fine - it is just the heat that is the problem!
"Three weeks out wasn't too bad, I think the injury goes from one to three and mine was a mild grade two. I knew it wouldn't be too long, but I just don't like being injured.
"It was the first game I have ever come off injured so, obviously, it was a bit of a downer but hopefully I can kick on now."
