Harri is back and ready to play his part

Full-back dsicusses his return to action.

6 April 2018

Four points in four days made it an excellent Easter for the Chairboys, but one of the biggest positives to come out from the weekend was the return of Michael Harriman after close to six months out with injury.

After suffering a broken leg in early October, it has been a long road back to fitness for the full-back, and his return came earlier than expected after Tafari Moore was forced off at Notts County through injury.

But now back and ready to make up for last time, Harri is feeling good and looking to play his part in the run-in.

“I feel good and my body feels good after two games in four days,” he said.

“Obviously I didn’t expect to be back so soon, but unfortunately Taf picked up that injury and that kind of threw me into the deep end but it feels fantastic to be back after such a long time out.

“I actually felt quite nervous coming on against Notts County and I don’t really know why because I have played a lot football before my injury, but you don’t know what it is going to be like until you get out there properly as training is a different kettle of fish to playing games.

“But I felt alright, I managed to settle into the game and I’m pleased we managed to get four points over the Easter weekend and it just feels great to be back out there."

After returning to the fold, Harriman and the team are in the midst of 12 days of rest, recovery and preparation for their trip to Yeovil on Saturday 14th April as Wanderers look to continue their hold on a spot in the automatic promotion places.

The break in play comes as Lincoln City take part in the Checkatrade Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium this weekend, and Harriman feels it could be a blessing in disguise ahead of the final five.

The right-back was also full of praise for his fellow team mates' achievements on the pitch in his absence, and feels the position they have given themselves has made it easier for him to slot back in.

“The boys are on a fantastic run so that helps when you are slotting back in even if you have had a while out like I have.

“We’ve now got five big games coming up and hopefully we can achieve that aim of promotion, but we need to just keep ticking off the games one by one and see where we end up.

“This break could do us the world of good and we will use it right to recover properly, work and be fresh and ready to go for these last five games.”
