Bozhinov close to reserve action

While Michael Johnson's progress continues to falter, Valeri Bozhinov seems to be making definite strides towards fitness. Said Hughes yesterday:
"Valeri Bojinov is very close to getting games at reserve team level, so we hope he’ll be back soon.

Boj has been joining in and doing warm-ups before joining in bigger area work, so we hope he joins in a game this week."
Of course we shouldn't be too hopeful too soon. Last season he was meant to be back for Christmas, then January, then February and so forth. He didn't pull on the shirt until the bizarre Far East tour in May.

This is how excited I about Bozhinov last August. We're not at that point yet, but clearly getting closer. This is good news.
