COLERAINE defender Lyndon Kane admits he has a lot of time to make up after playing his first competitive game of football in almost six months at the weekend.
The right-back played 45 minutes for the Reserves on Saturday as he completes what he hopes is the end of a lengthy rehabilitation from a foot injury.
Kane broke a metatarsal bone in his foot during a pre-season friendly against Derry City on June 24 and underwent a series of operations to repair the damage.
However, he suffered a number of setbacks and only now believes he is close to a return to action for the club's first team.
“It's been very tough and very long and only my family and friends know how hard it has been," admitted Lyndon this week.
“I was housebound for months and I don't know how many series I watched on Netflix.
“It's been a hard road with plenty of ups and downs but I've learned a lot about myself.
“There were a lot of dark days but I've no doubt I'll come back a bigger and better player.
“I've a lot of time to catch up on," he added.
That began on Saturday when he played one half for Johnny Law and got to feel the buzz of waking up on with a football match to look forward to.
And he didn't have long to wait to find out if he was ready for the challenge.
“I think the first tackle helped me, about two minutes into the game.
