Oviedo Targets Dundee Minutes

Bryan Oviedo has targeted further minutes on the pitch as he continues his comeback from injury.

The Costa Rican had been sidelined since February, before an end-of-season return was prevented when he fractured a metatarsal in his foot during training in April.

The 25-year-old finally returned to action in the 3-1 pre-season win over Hearts on Sunday.

Oviedo played 26 minutes after he came on for fellow left-back Leighton Baines, also back from injury, in the second half.

He is now targeting further action when the Blues face Dundee on Tuesday night.

“I am happy to be back again and to play some minutes,” said Oviedo. “Now everything is coming together well and I hope to play more minutes in this pre-season and be ready for the season ahead.

“It was a long wait but now it is in the past. Now the most important thing is to work hard and to be ready. For me, the most important thing is the future now.

“It was a good competitive game against Hearts. It was good for everyone to play and we played very well.

“We were very solid in defence and in attack we made many chances and scored good goals. We need to continue with that and progress ahead of the next game.

“I hope I can work hard on my fitness and get more minutes in the next game.”
