Delfouneso: Pick Up Where I Left Off

Forward Aims To Put Frustrating Injury Spell Behind Him

18 October 2019

Nathan Delfouneso hopes to rediscover his early season form now that he’s back from injury for Blackpool.

The forward, who scored a brace at Southend in August, has missed several matches due to two separate hamstring injuries, which were completely unrelated.

“I guess it’s all part and parcel of the game, but hopefully I’ve put it all behind me and I can pick up where I left off and go on a strong run again,” said Delfouneso, whose initially return was thwarted at Coventry.

“It wasn’t the case that I was rushed back too soon, I felt good. I was flying in training and I had hit every marker I needed to.

“I just got completely unlucky. That’s the only thing you can put it down to. It was the same leg, just a different part of the hamstring.”

Having come through a substitute appearance against Rotherham United unscathed, Delfouneso stepped up his fitness with a start at Carlisle United and now hopes to face Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday night.   

“On a personal note, it felt good to get some minutes into me and I now feel fit and strong,” he revealed.

“Ask anyone around the club and they will vouch for how gutted I was after suffering the injury.

“I’m not used to missing games and it was especially frustrating getting back to fitness only to get another injury.

“Now I’m just looking forward to picking up where I left off and hopefully I can help the team to move forward.”
