Harry Lennon says he is hoping to be fit for the start of the season.
The defender played half an hour on his comeback from a broken leg in Tuesday’s 3-2 pre-season win over Charlton Athletic.
And the 25-year-old said it was a great feeling to be back on the pitch once again.
"It’s been a tough few months for me since the injury happened in December so it was good to get out there for the first 30 minutes” he said.
"I felt a bit rusty but that will come with minutes.
"I’m starting to feel sharper every day I train and I’m hoping to be ready for the start of the season.
"I’ve timed it pretty well because we’ve still got two more pre-season games, on Saturday and then next Tuesday, so I’m hoping I’ll be fit and ready for the Carabao Cup game a week on Saturday.”
Blues picked up their third pre-season win in as many games against The Addicks and Lennon said it was a great second-half performance from the side.
"The first-half they were controlling things and had all the possession but then in the second half we came out and did well.
"We had the wind behind us to be fair but we spotted holes in their defence, created a lot of chances and were worthy of the win in the end.”
