Theo Walcott has been out of action since the 2-0 victory over Spurs at The Grove way back in January, but the Englishman says his recovery is coming along nicely.

Walcott went over in an innoculous challenge and despite looking happy enough as he was being stretchered of (heh) his injury kept him out for the reason of the season and forced him to miss the World Cup.

However Walcott can now see the light at the end of the tunnel and says his injury has healed and he just needs to build the strength in his knee.

‘The knee is going really well, I am doing some good stuff with the physios and fitness coaches and we have worked really hard throughout the summer,’ Walcott said.

‘Things are looking really good and I have worked very hard for the last five months now. The most important thing is getting the strength back and it has pretty much nearly healed – it is just about building up that stability and strength again.

‘It is coming along nicely and I am really pleased.’
