Huddersfield Town striker Fraizer Campbell discussed returning to training ahead of the potential resumption of the Sky Bet Championship season.
Fraizer, alongside his teammates, came back to Canalside on Monday 25 May 2020 to work in small groups.
He explained how strange he thinks the current scenario is, but detailed happy he was to be back with his teammates.
“It’s not been like any other season I’ve experienced in my career; it’s been weird.
“It was nice in the fact that there were four other people close-ish to you, whereas for the month before we were doing training at home, on your own, trying to keep on top of things; that could get mentally tough.
“From last week you had your teammates with you. Even if they were on the other side of the pitch, you could see them grafting, so it spurred you on it a bit. It’s definitely better for your mental health to be around people when you’re working out.
“We’ve been getting back used to being on the ball, shooting into a goal, getting your boots back on, little bits like that.
“It was mainly technical, and fitness work we were doing really, there’s not much you can do with tactics when there’s just four or five people when you can’t stand next to each other. It was more about getting a feel back on the ball.
“At home I haven’t been running in and out of cones or doing long range passes with my Mrs – she hasn’t got that technical ability.
“It was mainly technical and fitness work to bring us up to speed, that progressed into full contact.”
This week saw the staged return of contact into training, something which Fraizer has relished.
“It’s nice to be back in training, getting shoulder to shoulder with someone and beating them off the ball.
“Hoggy got booked in his first session, which surprised absolutely no-one. It’s nice to have that bit of competitiveness.
“When you’re doing it on your own you’ve got to focus on yourself, but when there’s a ball there and two of you running at it, you feel miles better.”
