Leon Best eyes Coventry City return
STRIKER Leon Best is desperate to get his season up-and-running with Coventry City.
The talented forward has been making great strides in training after suffering a minor knee injury in pre-season training.
"Besty is looking sharp again," said City boss Chris Coleman.
And Best - who was linked with Nottingham Forest throughout the summer - is desperate to make a big impact for the Sky Blues this summer.
He told the club's official site: ""Even to miss training, never mind the games, was really frustrating for me and it's just hard sitting on the side and watching because, as a person, you can't do anything to change the state you're in.
"You just have to let things take their course.
"If it was just a case of going through the pain barrier I would have done it no question but it was one of those injuries where rushing back only hurts your progress.
"And it drives you mad because within yourself you have a lot of energy because you've been resting but you can't do anything with it because you can't play."
Best made his first appearance of the season as a substitute at Doncaster and is now eager to play a part in the club's next match against Preston North End.
He added: ""I've been joking around with some of the other strikers saying they'd better watch out because I would be back soon.
"But we all get on really well with each other and it's healthy banter and healthy competition which makes us all want to perform that bit better."
