Having only featured once so far this season against Sheffield United, George Honeyman is looking forward to making his return from injury against Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The 27-year-old midfielder was introduced as a substitute at the MKM Stadium against the Blades in September, but picked up another injury during the game which has kept him out for the last few weeks.
However, Honeyman says he’s feeling much better this time round.
“I’m feeling better than the last time I came back,” Honeyman said.
“I’m just really enjoying being back in training and being back with the lads. It’s nice to have a good week of training under my belt this time.
“I’ve been lucky to not have too many injuries in my career. I’m looking forward to a successful season with the lads now.
“I’ve been extremely jealous of everyone who’s been out there on the pitch. When you are a professional footballer, injuries are part of your job.
“I doubt anyone goes through their career and doesn’t have an injury or operation at some point. You’ve got plenty of people that you can speak to about it.”
Even though the Tigers have only won twice so far this season, Honeyman believes that there’s enough quality within the squad to push up the league table over the coming months.
“I can’t wait to get stuck into it and see where we can go over the next few months,” Honeyman added.
“I think we’ve seen so far this year with everyone that we’ve played that there’s nobody to be scared of. We have to take great confidence from that and know that we’ve got to back ourselves in every game.
“We’re only a couple of months in and I don’t think we’ve had a settled squad yet. Let’s see where we are in three or four months' time and we’ll have a better idea. I think anyone who’s been here for the last few years like myself has still got huge motivation to try and push this club up the league.
“We do believe that we are good enough to compete in this league and be at the right side of the table.”
