Man Utd Striker Not Rushing Back
Alan Smith, who played 66 minutes in his first public return to action following his career threatening broken leg (last Feb v Liverpool), says he won't be rushing back to full Premiership action.
Smith said: 'Playing for the reserves is a step up from training and hopefully, in a few weeks time I will have had some more reserve games and then be able to make the step up to the first team. I just need a few matches under my belt now. My movement was okay and I just need to build up my strength a little bit.'
Adding: 'I could probably have played all night and not scored but I have worked hard all summer to play in matches.'
Man Utd reserves beat Preston 7-2.
