Mitchell on road to recovery and more

The midfielder speaks at length...

4 March 2021

It's been a long - and frustrating - road back to full fitness for Billy Mitchell.

Initially injured on the club's pre-season training camp in Scotland, just when it seemed as though the 19-year-old would be making his return, he suffered a setback in an Under 23s game and was forced to miss another 2-3 months of the campaign.

However, after being named on the bench in the last few matches, Gary Rowett handed Mitchell a start in Tuesday night's 2-1 victory over Preston North End - and he went on to play the full 90 minutes as The Lions turned a 1-0 deficit around to win.

Mitchell spoke to after the success, and you can hear what he had to say by clicking play on the video above.
