Wanderers midfielder Josh Sheehan reckons he “can bring a lot to the team” after missing the second half of last season due to injury.

The Welshman is back in training as he continues his recovery from a serious cruciate ligament injury.

While Sheehan was sidelined, the Whites went on a strong run to finish ninth in League One, spurred on by the arrivals of Dion Charles, Aaron Morley and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson among others.

“I can’t wait to be honest. Seeing the boys from January, the way they have been playing and how results have gone,” he told the club’s YouTube channel.

“Everyone wants to be part of that and I feel like I can bring a lot to the team as well, which is a positive.

“I can’t wait to be back with the boys and enjoy the season and hopefully kick on from where we left off.

“You can swap any players in and out and I feel like everyone can more than do a job. It can only be a benefit to us, to the manager and to the club to have players who are all fighting for the same spots and pushing each other on.

“You know if you don’t perform, someone else if raring to go and they are going to come in and make sure they are in the team.”

Ahead of the upcoming season, Ian Evatt has already made it clear that his goal is to push for promotion to the Championship.

Sheehan is also aiming high and says morale is high in the dressing room ahead of the pre-season run-in.

He added: “I feel like everyone knows what our ambitions are this year and that is clear enough for everyone to see.

“We are all confident and it is a very positive vibe around the club, which helps even more.

“You know that if things aren’t going right at times, the fans, the noise and encouragement they give us can make a massive difference. We are all looking forward to it and we are positive about the season.

“The fans have always been brilliant. You can tell it’s a massive club with the amount of fans we have and the noise they make. They are unbelievable.

“I feel like everyone enjoys the way we play and hopefully that brings a lot of joy to the fans and they are proud of how we play and work hard together.

“Hopefully we can bring more joy this season and reach the goals we want.”

Prior to his injury, Sheehan was called up for Wales and featured in a 0-0 draw against Finland in Helsinki.

Earlier this month, Rob Page’s side qualified for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar after a 64-year wait to play in the famous competition.

“It’s unbelievable. It is something that when you are younger, you don’t think is really possible,” said Sheehan.

“It is obviously a special group with what they have achieved in the last six to eight years with Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey, Joe Allen and others.

“They have carried Wales onto the next level and I feel like they have set the standard for the next lot of Welsh players. It’s an exciting time for Welsh football.

“Any Welsh player, if you have a good start to the season then you never know what could happen - especially in football, it always surprises.

“All you’ve got to do is concentrate on your club football and just start as well as you can.

“If you get called up for Wales, it’s a dream but if you don’t, you’ve just got to concentrate on everything you can and playing well.”
