Ollie Turton has had an eventful week, marking a significant step in his recovery from a severe knee injury. The Huddersfield Town defender returned to the Millers Oils High Performance Complex training grounds after an eight-month hiatus, during which he had suffered an anterior cruciate ligament rupture. In this session, he engaged in ball work for the first time. Turton, who had not played since February when Huddersfield faced a 1-0 defeat at Wigan Athletic, expressed his eagerness to return to competitive play, with a tentative target of New Year as per the advice of the physiotherapists. However, he is hopeful of accelerating this timeline. Turton acknowledged that he’s been tackling his recovery by setting smaller milestones.
The club’s manager, Darren Moore, is expected to provide an update on Turton’s progress in an upcoming press briefing. Huddersfield Town is gearing up to face Queens Park Rangers at the John Smith’s Stadium in their next match. As it stands, Huddersfield occupies the 19th spot in the league standings, three points ahead of QPR. Moore, who took over from Neil Warnock, is yet to secure his first win as manager, with three draws and one defeat in his initial four matches in charge.
