Wilson smiling at return prospects

Wilson fractured his left shin in a reserve team against Bournemouth in October and made his comeback in Wednesday night's 3-1 County Cup win over local rivals Bristol Rovers.

The 26-year-old was expected to play in the second half of the encounter but enjoyed an hour-long run-out following an injury to team-mate Brian Wilson.

After coming through the game unscathed, Wilson is looking to force his way back into Gary Johnson's plans and told the club's official website: "I'm still a bit rusty, as is to be expected, but it was great to get an hour under my belt.

"Realistically I probably still need another four or five reserve matches before I can return for the first team. This match has been one stop along the road to full recovery.

"I've been out for a while because of a succession of injuries and now I hope I've put that all behind me. I've been training properly for two weeks and now I've got my first match action. I just need to build from here on in."
