Saints defender steps up comeback

Daily Echo: DAN SEABORNE DAN SEABORNE

Dan Seaborne is set take another step on the road back towards a first-team return today.

The Saints defender is due to start for the under-21 side in their match with Brighton at Staplewood this afternoon.

It will be the centre half’s third appearance this month for what effectively doubles as the reserve team.

Seaborne is working his way back from a serious head injury that has kept him out since the start of September.

The 25-year-old has been training with the first team for the last few weeks and will have a chance to further sharpen his game and increase his match fitness today.

Well done Dan - and good luck in the match and for a full recuperation. It'll be great to have another centre back available, especially left-sided, when required. And it's good to have intense competition for all places in the starting lineup - yes, even Jos needs to keep on his toes!

That is a very negative statement, how do you know that the blow hasn't knocked him sensible? At least he can put pressure on the first choice pair.

The question is, not his attitude, but is he good enough? I didn't really think he was up to the Championship. But to be fair he made a good start to the season. But if we go up I can't see him being good enough for the Prem.

A Championship mid table club or an ambitious League 1 club for me.

Like everyone else, would wish Dan all the best and hope he makes it back all the way.
Can anyone tell me if after promotion we would be obliged to field a reserve team next year. I hope we do as its a better way of bringing players back from injury and of blooding youngsters.
Meanwhile, another good win on saturday and we are almost there, 3-1 me thinks.
Lots of great postings by the way, wish I was as creative.

He has spent his entire career proving doubters wrong and my money is on him to continue doing so.

I thought he was playing exceptionally well before he was assaulted. If he gets through it unscathed both physically and mentally why wouldn't that continue?

To be honest we haven't seen enough of him at this level to truely judge. I didn't think Hammond would step up but he performs his role when called upon very well indeed. Barnard was the other one who i didn't think would step up and I still don't know as he's not had a chance to show us.

For you, maybe?
But onto matters of significance-namely MY SAINTS.
Some Saints fans still don't get it, full of negativity and ever the arch-critics, never giving their own more than 7/10. You won't hear Kelvin or Barty slagging each other off, or Sharpy moaning that he's better than anyone insitu, or Nigel blaming anyone else. It's because they're a team, with team-spirit and an inspirational leader. I wish we could lose the moaning minnies, but unfortunately they will thrive in the promised Prem land-just listen to those bar-room and couch-potato ManU and Chelski ites -know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

That wasn't moaning. That was more a discussion or a debate about whether Seaborne is good enough, it has absolutely nothing to do with getting behind the team. Discussing our opinions on our team is a part of being a football...it's also pretty much the only point of an internet forum.

You're the one who's moaning and whinging.

Personally, I thought Seaborne wasn't good enough for us in League One.

If he can prove he's good enough for us, then he'll prove it.

Saints to win 3-1

COYR!!!

Premier League be warned...
The Saints are coming.
