Aussie continues recovery bid...
United defender Paddy Kisnorbo says he is making progress as he continues his recovery from the knee ligament injury sustained against Burnley at the start of January.
The Australian international was immediately ruled out for the remainder of the season and is now recovering from the second major injury in as many years after an Achilles injury, sustained in March 2010, sidelined him for a full 13 months.
"I'm running again which is great and things have been going well," said Paddy.
"It's a case of slowly, slowly and we'll see where it gets me. I don't how long or anything like that, I do what I'm being told.
"I want to be back as soon as possible, but in a safe way. When I first did my Achilles it was the first injury I'd really had, and now I've had two in two years so hopefully I'll get a bit of luck when I come back."
Along with Davide Somma, who suffered a knee injury in pre-season and hasn't played this term, Paddy knows more than most what his defensive team-mate Leigh Bromby is facing in the coming months after he suffered a long-term knee injury last weekend.
"I wasn't at Cardiff, but I heard what happened," said Paddy. "He's such a great guy. I text him straight away to say 'be strong and it'll be alright.' I really hope he comes back. It's a horrifying injury.
"Hopefully we'll see him back playing for Leeds United which I'm sure we will.
"It is a mental thing when you're out for so long because when the boys are training you can't train and when they play you can't play. He's strong enough and he's got the support of all the boys."
Paddy took time out from his re-hab this week to join Elland Road director Peter Lorimer at St George's Crypt in Leeds as part of World Book Night.
The pair joined a number of clients at the Crypt who are taking literacy and creative writing courses where they handed out of copies of David Peace's book about Brian Clough and the club, The Damned United.
"This is a great facility for a great cause," said Paddy.
"In the winter there's a lot of hungry people who find it hard to eat or sleep, and this shelters them.
"I can't imagine how hard it'd be to be one of those people, but it takes a lot of time and effort to run something like this and it's great."
