Dorian Dervite is set to ease himself back into training on Monday around nine months after suffering a severe knee injury.The French central defender, who made his First Team debut in the Carling Cup tie against Port Vale last November, sustained serious cruciate ligament damage in a Reserve Team friendly encounter at Norwich in January and is now hopefully nearing the end of the long road of rehabilitation.

"On Monday I will start a programme of one day training then one day off and hopefully I will soon get better and stronger," reported Dorian, who it was anticipated would be out for at least a year.

"It is not completely perfect, I will have to continue working in the gym to make my knee stronger and hopefully in a couple of weeks it will be perfect.

"I've had good very good rehab here and I've worked hard so I think I am getting the reward for that," added Dorian, before going on to admit there will be a few nerves when he takes to the training pitches again.

"I am excited but also a little nervous about the first contact work, but the confidence for that will come in time. I am not sure when I will be ready to play, but hopefully it will be soon - we'll see."
