Upson ready for action

4 September 2014

Midfielder looking for Portman Road involvement

Lions midfielder Ed Upson hopes to play a part against former club Ipswich Town next Saturday.

The midfielder, who rose through the ranks at Portman Road before joining Yeovil in 2010, is yet to make his first appearance of the season because of an injury picked up just before the opening day fixture against Leeds.

However, the 24-year-old has been back in full training for a week now and has his eyes set on facing The Tractor Boys in Millwall's next League match.

"I grew up there and I've still got a few friends around the place," Upson told "It was nice to go back with Yeovil last year and hopefully I can be involved in some capacity for Millwall this time around.

"It was massively frustrating to get injured when I did for obvious reasons. You've built your fitness up over six weeks and you want to get playing straight away so to get injured in the first week was gutting for me.

"I was keen to be involved in the first game of the season and the ones since then so it's been disappointing for me so far. But I've worked hard to get back to fitness and I'm ready for selection again.

"I want to get going again and I want to get back in the squad and play. I'd prefer there not to be an international break at the moment but that's just the way it's gone. It's nice to be back fit in time for the Ipswich game."
