Lions defender sets sights on first-team return

Carlos Edwards admits that he can't wait to return to the cut and thrust of first team football having recovered from a serious knee injury.

The popular 36-year-old ruptured his knee ligaments in the opening minutes of last September's home game with Nottingham Forest.

Although his contract with The Lions finished this summer, Carlos continued his rehabilitation and training at the club throughout the close season.

Such was the gusto and positivity with which he attacked his rehab, he was offered a short-term contract to stay at The Den and penned the deal on Monday this week.

Now, having got match minutes under his belt during pre-season and playing for Millwall's U21s, Carlos has his sights set on getting a taste of League One action with The Lions.

"All the hard work has paid off with me signing a short-term contract," he told LionsPlayerHD. "It was always going to be the case; I have obviously been speaking to the gaffer over the past few months about getting something that was right for both the club and myself.

"Here we are today, signed, sealed and delivered. I'm just waiting to put the shirt back on, run out with the boys and try to help us with a winning streak to push us back up the table.

"I'm fully confident; I won't be crossing that white line with any 'ifs or buts'. It will be a case of saying 'what can I do now to help the team?'.

"There is no point looking back. That injury has gone. It's a fresh start now and I can't wait."
