MATTHEW LE TISSIER tonight expects to make his long-awaited come-back from the knee injury which has sidelined him for almost three months.

The Dell hero has not played since damaging ligaments at home to Manchester City in October, but he has been back in full training for a week and hopes to start the FA Premier Reserve League game against Charlton at Staplewood (7pm).

He said: "It has been such a frustrating time. I was just starting to get going in the first-team when this happened and I have struggled ever since.

"But now I feel good. I can kick the ball with no pain so hopefully I should be okay to play tonight and then build up to full match fitness."
