Fulham striker Andy Johnson hopes to be back in action next month.
Johnson made only 13 appearances last season after struggling with shoulder and groin problems.
"I've done everything I can to make sure I haven't lost any speed," Johnson told the Daily Mirror.
"I've worked on my glutes, my hamstrings and my core strength - everything that gives me pace. Of course, we'll see when I get out there, but I'm confident I can be as fast as I've ever been.
"If it's the end of September, October, or whenever, that's when it is, but I can see the light now."
"Andy should be back in four weeks," Hughes told the Fulham Chronicle.
