However, scans revealed no serious damage much to the relief of the Frenchman.

The 20 year old told the Evening Chronicle: "It's a real pleasure to be back from injury, I really think that my durability will be better now.

"I thought my season was over after what happened at Wigan, but I'm delighted to be able to play again this season.

"The team really needs all of the players available for the last few games, I'm ready and available to help the team."
