Teddy Bishop thought his season was over, before making a surprise comeback against Charlton on Tuesday night.
Prior to coming off the bench for the final eight minutes on Tuesday night, Bishop hadn’t kicked a ball all season due to hamstring and shin injuries, with manager Mick McCarthy suggesting recently that his season may well be written off.
Bishop felt the same before making a quicker than expected return, which followed a few setbacks, meaning he is keen to ease himself back into action.
“It was tough for me because I’d be thinking ‘I’m nearly back’ then I was back out again but this time I feel positive, I feel strong and hopefully that is the end of it now,” he told the club website.
“There was a few times where I thought I wouldn’t play this season and I should just look to next season but the physios are good at reminding you that if you do your rehab then you never know.

“The gaffer has been really sensible with me. I think he’s going to ease me in because the last thing I need now is to start a game and feel something after half an hour.
“Hopefully I can have a few more substitute appearances and if they are going well I can get a start before the end of the season.”
