Rolando Aarons featured in latest B Team game
- Rolando Aarons made his first appearance back from injury
- Enjoyed a good performance against Lincoln City with Town B
- Winger grateful to be back on the pitch
Huddersfield Town winger Rolando Aarons made his comeback from injury by playing 31 minutes in the B Team's 4-0 win over Lincoln City at Canalside on Wednesday afternoon.
The 25-year-old caused trouble for Lincoln down the left side and played a key role in Town's first goal, winning the goalscoring corner after just three minutes.
The January signing was delighted to return to action after his spell on the sidelines.
"It felt very good.
"I've spent the last six/seven weeks with the physiotherapist doing rehab, so it was nice to be back in a real match situation.
"You can't replicate the feeling of playing a game in rehab or in training, so it was great to be back out there."
Aarons admitted his injury set back frustrated him, but the thought of a return to action helped spur him on.
"Every injury is frustrating, but I'm just so glad to have come through rehab now and hopefully be able to get straight back into the swing of things.
"I was getting a bit giddy thinking about it over the past few weeks, but the physios and the sports science team have done a good job in keeping me grounded when I've needed it.
"This game was always part of the plan, so I'm just pleased to get through the 30 minutes and hopefully I can push on now."
During his recovery, the First Team winger linked up with the B Team in training and, having already played a few games with them pre-injury, commented on how easy he found it to play with them.
"I already knew a few of the players through playing with them in training, plus some of the other lads have been in the First Team and have played a few games, so it wasn't too hard to adjust today.
"As you get a bit older you've obviously been in their situation before, whether it's coming through the Academy or being on the fringe of the First Team, so I can advise them on what I would do both on and off the pitch through my own experiences."
Aarons also added that he hopes he will be able to impact the First Team in the near future.
"It was a very disappointing result yesterday, so hopefully I can get back out on the pitch to help us achieve some positive results and hopefully I'll score a few goals and create some too."
