Crystal Palace striker Connor Wickham spoke to Palace TV’s Chris Grierson after appearing in yesterday’s U21 game against Bristol City, delivering good news for Palace fans everywhere.
On what was a dissapointing day for the team as a whole, thanks to the skewed final score line of 1-0 to the visitors, the former Sunderland man’s return to action will certainly be looked upon as the high point of the day by most Palace fans.
Quizzed over the nature of his rehabilitation from what was a severe calf strain, the big man offers an extremely optimistic update on when we can expect to see him donning a red and blue shirt for Alan Pardew’s first-team.
He may still be yet to get off the mark in front of goal for the Eagles, but there are plenty of supporters who are hoping that the Ipswich academy graduate can prove to be the answer to our recent struggles in front of goal when he does make his long awaited return to first-team action; if not necessarily as a result of 20 to 25 goals himself every season, at least through the involvement of others in our attacking moves.
Could Liverpool be too soon to expect him back in action? You tell us.
