Teemu Tainio is aiming to get back to his best when he makes his return from hernia surgery.

The tigerish midfielder has began his rehabilitation and predicts it will be a period of three weeks before he is able to pull on the shirt again in a competitive arena.

"It is now just over two weeks after my surgery and I have started doing exercises," reported the Finland international. "It feels alright and I think it will be about three weeks before I am fully fit and playing games again. I am making progress though.

"I had a similar operation five years ago on both sides, but this time it was only the left side," he added.

"I know I wasn't playing my best, but it was a bit of a shock to find out I needed an operation. Hopefully my bad games will be behind me now and I will come back stronger."
