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.
