STRATFORD Town manager Carl Adams is set to make a dramatic return to the bench just two weeks after suffering a punctured lung and broken ribs in the Southern League Division One South & West game at Taunton Town.
Adams has been recovering at home since he was released from hospital last week but has decided to return to the fray for Saturday’s home game against Bridgwater Town.
The Town boss attended last Saturday’s game against Merthyr Town in a watching capacity and was also observing at Tuesday night’s training session at the DCS Stadium.
“I’m getting a bit stronger each day,” Adams told the Herald. “I have good days and bad days and I have to accept that it is a slow full recovery. But I’m getting bored just sitting around doing nothing so I fully intend to be back on Saturday.
“I thought that we were desperately unlucky to lose to a late goal against Merthyr and maybe on another day we might have tightened up and accepted the point in injury-time. But we’ve got a young team who are exciting to watch so that’s never going to be our style.
“Sometimes as we all know you don’t get what you deserve in football.”
Adams will be without defender Loyiso Recci on Saturday as he begins the first of a three-match suspension following his recent sending off.
Striker Tyrone Fagan may well feature at some point against Bridgwater after missing last Saturday’s game with a hamstring strain, although Adams admits that the big front man is only ‘50-50’.
