19 September 2012 09:28
Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton has returned to training and hopes to be back playing at the start of next month.

Albrighton is well on the road to recovery, three months after suffering a stress fracture in his foot.

He told Villa's official website: "It's been so frustrating. It's dragged out like it's been years. "But it's going well now. I started training on Sunday and I did some more training on Tuesday. Hopefully I will have a couple of weeks to get sharp and then I can get going again. "I have been doing full training with the group. I had a few sessions with the fitness coach and the physios previously and it went fine. Touch wood, I'm back now. "It's a dream to be back. Watching the lads over the last couple of games has been fantastic. But there's nothing like playing."
