'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Pittman recovery ahead of schedule


A hi-tech anti-gravity treadmill designed by American space agency Nasa is helping Blues' striker Jon-Paul Pittman on his road to recovery.

"It lets you train at a percentage of your body weight which basically enables you to run at a higher speed earlier on in your injury, so it will hopefully get me back fitter - sooner," Pittman told Chairboys Player.

"There's not long left now," he said. "I'm on the home straight trying to tweak my fitness and my strength and it won't be long before I'm back."

"I'm hoping it will be before February, but if it takes until February then that's what it takes - because I want to be back fully fit, I don't want to come back too early."

"I've taken a lot of my speed running outside now. I've started twisting and turning and striking balls, and it's nice to be outside and get your boots back on."

Pittman was Wycombe's top scorer in pre-season with eight goals, including a superbly executed four-minute hat-trick against a talented Chelsea X1.

He also scored a crucial goal on the opening day of the season against Morecambe, before suffering a ruptured tendon in his left knee while warming up for the Macclesfield game in early September.

The pacy striker will be a welcome addition to Gary Waddock's attacking options during the second half of the season.
