Saddlers star just wants to play

The Walsall forward, 33, was in good form until sustaining a groin problem against Southampton at the start of December, one that proved a lot more troublesome than first expected. The road to recovery finally started to show signs of nearing an end last month as he returned to full training and appeared for the reserves. But Jones' true comeback came on Saturday, ironically in the Saddlers' return clash against Saints, as he appeared from the bench to make a 25-minute cameo at St Mary's. "It's been a very frustrating three months," Jones told Walsall's official website. "I would go as far to say it has been the lowest point of my career as I have never been out for this long. "All I want to do now is get out there and play. I have worked extremely hard with the physio over the past few months and hopefully now I can put the injury behind me and start pushing on. It's time for me to start looking up rather than down now."
