Watch | Luke Berry returns with a goal!

Luke Berry said it was ‘brilliant’ to be back on the pitch and mark his return with a goal in a 4-0 win against Harrogate Town.


The midfielder has been absent from the matchday squad since suffering an injury in the home victory against Hull City but relished being back out on the pitch at Kenilworth Road.

“I’ve had a good two or three weeks of full training, I came back a bit earlier than expected and it was unfortunate the games were called off, but it worked in my favour to get up to speed.

“At the time of the injury, I thought I did it quite badly so I was worried but luckily it was 10-12 weeks in the end, and at the same time with the momentum the boys had and I had then I thought we could get a good little run going, but it’s one of those things in football which is frustrating.”

28 minutes into his return, Berry wrapped up proceedings with the fourth goal of the afternoon after good wing-play from Fred Onyedinma.

"I’ve been working a lot with Chris and the gaffer and I’m doing finishing sessions after training. We work on arriving in the box and it’s always that third man cut-back because I’m always in there.

"I said to Fred if you get an opportunity cut one back and I’ve sort of scuffed it and luckily it went just underneath the bar!"
