Stoke City striker Tyrese Campbell has taken to social media to express his delight at a long-awaited return to match action.
Campbell had been in outstanding form for the Potters at the start of last season, scoring six goals in 16 league games for the Potters.
However, the attacker has not featured for Stoke’s senior side since suffering a serious knee injury against Cardiff back in December.

Now though, Campbell has taken another big step towards his return to action, after getting his first lot of minutes since that injury under his belt.
The attacker played an hour for Stoke’s Under 23s in their 2-0 defeat to Middlesbrough on Monday night, and despite that result, it seems Campbell enjoyed his personal milestone in that game.
Taking to Twitter the day after his return to action for the club’s Under 23s, the Stoke striker posted a simple but clear message on his page, that simply read: “Up and running”.

It has been a strong start to the season for Stoke, who currently sit third in the Championship table, with 13 points from their opening six games.
You can’t blame Campbell for being pleased to get back to action here.
After so long without being able to play, that return to the pitch will no doubt have felt extremely good for the Stoke City attacker.
Indeed, that is just reward for the hard work he has put in to get to this point, and the nature of his post suggests that he is not simply sitting back on what he has done, but is determined to move forward as well.
It has already been a strong start to the season for Stoke, and adding a fit and firing Campbell to their side in the coming weeks and months would surely be another big boost to their promotion hopes.
