Dasilva enjoying his game after injury comeback

Jay Dasilva has been able to put the frustrations of his five-month injury layoff behind him and he now looks forward to helping the team push on in 2020.

The left-back had been out of action since the opening day of the season after suffering a lower leg stress fracture.

He returned to action with 45 minutes against Charlton Athletic on Boxing Day and hasn’t looked back since.

 

“I’m enjoying my football again,” the 21-year-old defender told the club website ahead of this weekend’s away game at Wigan Athletic.

“Obviously I was out for a while, nearly five months so it’s been a bit of a frustrating time for me but it’s good to be back out there with the boys.”

Fresh from the squad’s mini break ahead of Saturday’s trip to the DW Stadium, Dasilva continued: “Everyone is relaxed, there’s good morale and everyone is on it so it should be good going into the weekend.

“Wigan this Saturday, we know it will be a tough game, every game is a tough game and that’s how we approach every weekend. We take it game by game knowing that we’re a good team, knowing our qualities and what we are capable of. We just focus on us and make sure we’re at our best.

“We’re always confident, that’s the type of squad we have here. Our confidence stays the same. We know what we need to do, just focus on that and soon it will pay off.”
