Fulham Steve Sidwell hopes a full week's training will be enough for him to be fit for Fulham's Barclays Premier League game against Blackpool on Sunday week.
January signing Sidwell has not played for more than a month after suffering a knee injury but is back in light training and is set to return to full contact on Monday.
The midfielder, 28, said on his club's official Facebook page: "We've got Blackpool coming up the weekend after next so I've had a bit of training this week, then I'll be in full training on Monday.
"I can get a week's full training in before the game.
"It's been a frustrating four weeks for me but I needed that time to recover."
