Midfielder pleased to get 90 minutes under his belt in friendly against Dagenham & Redbridge

Midfielder Kevan Hurst was delighted to get 90 minutes under his belt in Tuesday’s behind-closed-doors friendly against Dagenham and Redbridge.

And he’s now set his sights on making his first appearance of the season against hometown club Chesterfield FC this weekend.

Having missed some of pre-season and the start of the campaign, the 27-year-old is desperate to get back out on the pitch.

 “It was good to be playing again during the week and hopefully I can get on at some stage at the weekend as well,” said Hurst.

“I have to manage the injury carefully and ice it quite regularly because otherwise it can become quite stiff.

“But it’s not going to stop me playing and I would like to be able to help the lads build on their fantastic start to the season.

“Saturday is another big game because Chesterfield are another good side who are also doing well and it’s a game I’d love to play in, especially as it’s always a big game for me because it’s where I’m from.

“I’m getting back now to fitness now, playing 90 minutes against Dagenham was a big step forward for me and the next aim is to play in the league and help us build on our best start to a season in 23 years which is something we’re all really pleased about.”
