Wayne Routledge can see the light at the end of the tunnel after what he admits has been a tough three months on the treatment table.

The winger broke a bone in his foot in our opening day win at Portsmouth on August 13 and has been battling back to fitness since. He finally returned with a 45-minute stint for the reserves against Palace on Wednesday night.

“It was great to be back out there and to get 45 minutes under my belt,†beamed Wayne after the 5-0 win at Stevenage Borough. “Hopefully I can kick on from here.

I felt a bit rusty to be honest but I know myself I’ve got plenty more to come

“It’s been a long, hard process but hopefully I’m at the end of that and now I’ll be able to get more involved, play more games and see where that takes me.

“It’s been tough but it’s all part of the learning curve. It tests you mentally more than anything. I haven’t really been injured before and this is my first serious injury but I’ve learned from it and hopefully I’ll come back stronger.â€Â
