Although not quite operating at full throttle, Steffen reports that his back is currently feeling fine and says that to come through this week unscathed would be a 'major step' towards a return to the first team squad.
"I'm almost back in full training now and it feels very good," revealed the Norwegian at Spurs Lodge. "I had a minor setback last week but everything is fine again now.
"We'll wait and see this week to find out if I can get through all the sessions - it would be a major step for me.
"It is important that the back gets a lot of rest inbetween those sessions and I must do the right things during those times.
"This week will be a big test for me, if it goes well it should be alright."
Steffen Iversen has this week returned to training for the first time since sustaining the back injury that ruled him out from the end of January.
