Wycombe Wanderers defender Michael Harriman is targeting a comeback at the end of next month as his recovery from a broken leg progresses nicely.

The right-back was in scintillating form this season before the heartbreaking injury which was sustained innocuously in training in the lead up the Cambridge United game in early October.

Now, Harriman can see light at the end of the tunnel and is working hard towards a February comeback.

Speaking exclusively to the Bucks Free Press, Harriman said: “The injury is progressing really well.

“I has obviously been a long time out but I now have a set date and the aim is to be back at the end of next month is everything continues to go well. That is the aim and I have to keep working hard and keep my head down for that target.”

Before the broken leg, Harriman was in superb form at right-back, making key contributions including a fantastic equaliser which paved the way for a terrific comeback over Crewe.

He added: “It seems to be always the way with me. I hit a bit of form and they I get a setback.

“This is obviously the biggest setback I have had in my career. The form is always there. Playing football is what I love to do and I can’t wait to be back and hopefully when I get out there I can hit the ground running.”

In Harriman’s absence, young loanee Tafari Moore has come into the team in recent weeks and made a huge impressions and Harriman knows he faces a fight for his place.

He said: “Competition is always healthy. When I am ready I will be back. You have to play for your place. Tafari has been brilliant and I look forward to working with him.”
