The striker is approaching the final hurdle of his rehabilitation after badly breaking his arm in March.
Les has one more pin supporting his wrist that is due to be removed next Thursday. He has maintained his fitness throughout pre-season and assures us when that last pin is removed, he'll be raring to go.
Les looked in fine fettle when the lads trained on the lush new pitch at the Lane for the first time on Thursday.
"The arm's fine," he reported. "I've been joining in with the five-a-sides and the eight-a-sides and it feels okay.
"There is just one pin left in there so I've got to be careful that I don't fall over and land on it, because I've been told it could come through the arm, but that comes out on Thursday and I'll be raring to.
"Once the pin is out I'm ready and, hopefully, that will be against Lazio. It's been frustrating but I'm confident I'll be there."
