CHARLIE Daniels says "everything is going well" with his latest recovery from injury.

The left-back is expected to miss the rest of the 2019-20 campaign after dislocating the patella in his right knee playing against Manchester City in August.

Discussing his recovery with afcbTV, Daniels said: "Everything is going well so far. I've started to go on a bike now, which is progress for me.

"I was in a brace for eight weeks keeping my leg straight so that was a tough task.

"But now I can start bending it and increasing the range day-by-day. So to get on the bike is another little tick and we need to just keep going along and see how we get on.

"They've been the best. Everyone has had their ups and downs.

"Franno and Lewis Cook and Callum Wilson have had long-term knee injuries so you get inspiration from them and see how well they've done since they've come back so that gives me hope and a positive outlook on my injury."

Daniels was present for Saturday's home defeat against Wolves, and revealed he visited his team-mates before kick-off.

"It was the first time I'd been in the stadium on a matchday since I did my injury," said the 33-year-old.

"I went in the changing room and it was a little bit surreal because obviously I haven't been in there for a good number of weeks but to see the lads and how pumped up they were before the game it brought all the feelings back and it was a good feeling."
