PETER Sweeney plans to make up for lost time and hit the ground running this season following his injury nightmare.
The AFC Wimbledon midfielder made just six appearances since his January switch to the Dons before suffering a broken foot in February, which ruled him out for the rest of the campaign.
However, the 28-year-old is back to fitness and ready to carry on where he left off.
“It was a frustrating time,” he admitted. “I've been quite lucky with injuries in my career until then.
“I'm glad to be back out there and keen to make up for lost time.
“I feel really good. I've joined in with all of the sessions and done better than I hoped. I didn't have a holiday this year and worked really hard in the summer. It seems to be paying off.”
Sweeney also paid tribute to boss Neal Ardley and says he's relishing the start of the new campaign at Torquay on August 3.
He added: “The style of play the manager wants us to play suits me perfectly. I'm enjoying every minute of it.”
