Plymouth Argyle ace Dominic Telford has opened up about the tough season that he has endured so far, having been struggling with injuries so far throughout the campaign.
Having signed from Bury in the summer, the 22-year-old striker has spent two spells on the sideline already this season because of hamstring injuries.
Telford was kept out for a short while during the pre-season programme for the Pilgrims, however his second injury kept him watching on from the stands for seven weeks as he was forced to recuperate and not be rushed back into action.
Having made a full recovery from his second injury. he has appeared in the last three games as a substitute, taking his tally to games played in this season to 11, also playing in one of the under-23 games.
Telford said: “John Lucas (Argyle’s head of fitness and conditioning) has been brilliant with my strength programme and I’m feeling good in the gym and out on the grass.
“I have had a good month behind me now of training, playing in the reserve game (against Everton) and coming on here and there.

“I’m feeling back to where I was. It has definitely been tough but it’s part of the game. You have just got to make sure that you are working hard to come back stronger.”
On Sunday, the Pilgrims visit Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup Second Round as the League Two club are dreaming of an upset at their League One opponents.
22-year-old Telford will be coming up against his former club, having made 24 appearances for the Pirates while on loan at The Memorial Stadium from Stoke City in the 2017/2018 season.
Telford is keen on making an impression on Plymouth’s season and shaping the way that their season is going to go, and with his injury now out of the way, he can get back to concentrating on his football.
The striker has the talent and the right attitude to carve out a good career for himself in the Football League, but he will be hoping that injuries don’t end up weighing him down.
