McGinn plays 45 minutes for reserves

McGinn plays 45 minutes for reserves

Long-term absentee Stephen McGinn continued his long comeback trail today with a 45 minute run out for Watford's development side.

The Hornets, overseen by first-team coach Tony Loughlan, went down 1-0 against a Southampton XI but the headline news was McGinn's involvement.

Former St Mirren midfielder McGinn got 45 minutes under his belt, his first football since he damaged his knee ligaments against Doncaster Rovers last season.

Loughlan revealed that McGinn has also been joining in with first-team training 'regularly' as he continues his long-awaited comeback.

Speaking to The Official Site, Loughlan said:

'There were one or two interesting things for us to take in today - but above everything else it was fantastic to see Stephen out there involved.

'He's been joining in with first-team training regularly enough for the medical team to feel he was ready for this - and it appears to have gone really well for him.'

Watford: Loach; Horner, Bennett, Forsyth, James (Connolly 26); Mingoia, McGinn (Akubuine HT), Buaben, Bryan; Assombalonga &(Massey HT), Trialist.

Let's hope he is as good as before he got injured... Sometimes players don't come back after a bad injury as good as before....

The skills &techniques by surgeons have come a long way, Eustace has come back well, as long as he is managed well, I see no reason to see he won't.

Agreed. Very rare you hear of a player who doesn't make it back nowadays. Looking forward to seeing him in action again. Almost forget he is ours!

He might be reluctant to challenge with fear of getting hurt again...

He might have to sleep with a light on, at least give the lad a chance, before you write him off.
