Man Utd Striker Not Rushing Back

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.

With Ruud departing, it could be time for Alan Smith to step up and show finally what he's made of as a striker.

Good to see smithy back, hes a good aggresive player who could give a lot of premiership defenders a hard time.
