Sheffield Wednesday striker Steven MacLean is recovering well from his leg injury.Sheffield Wednesday striker Steven MacLean says he is recovering well from a horrible pre-season leg injury.
The former Rangers hit-man fractured his tibia and damaged knee ligaments during Wednesday's pre-season friendly against Manchester City back in the summer.
The 23-year-old has yet to make an appearance for the Championship club this season, but MacLean is now on the road to recovery.
"I saw the specialist a couple of weeks ago and he said everything was fine," MacLean told the club's official website.
"He said I was ahead of schedule, which is pleasing.
"Since then, I've been doing some running and have kicked a ball a few times - nothing much.
"It is nice to try and get back involved, even just being on the same pitch as the rest of the lads.
"I've been stepping it up every day, particularly the strengthening work and it's going well, so I hope I can be back soon and help the team."
