Ipswich Town striker Freddie Sears is making good progress as he continues his recovery from a cruciate knee ligament injury.

The 29-year-old suffered the injury during the Blues' loss to Norwich at Carrow Road in February, ruling him out for the remainder of last season and the beginning of the new campaign.

Sears has a target of training fully with the first team in October before making his competitive return a few weeks later and is making solid progress in his recovery.
