Teddy Bishop, Danny Rowe and Emyr Huws all stepped up their bids to return from injury this afternoon as they played in a behind-closed-doors game against Cambridge.

Bishop played an hour of the contest, having not been in action since rupturing his hamstring against QPR on Boxing Day.

Huws missed almost all of last season with Achilles and then a knee injury and played the first half of the game against Cambridge.

Rowe also played an hour of the game, having been out of action since suffering an ankle injury during his loan spell at Lincoln City last season.

Though first-team manager Paul Hurst was happy to see the trio back on the field, he insisted they are all a long way from being involved in the first team.

“It’s good to see them out on the grass but it’s just the first step,” he said.
