Andre Dozzell is continuing his recovery from a serious knee injury with an intensive two-week rehabilitation stint at Cambridge University.

A post shared by Alex Chapman (@alexthephysio) on

Following a stellar summer in which he helped England Under 19s to European Championship glory in Georgia, Dozzell was named in the starting line-up for the Blues’ opening-day clash with Birmingham but suffered a nasty ACL injury to his right knee 50 minutes into the contest.

It is likely to keep him out of the season, with the teenager undergoing surgery in London in August to reconstruct his knee.

But his rehabilitation programme is well underway, with Town’s first team physiotherapist, Alex Chapman, posting regular updates on social media.

Chapman’s video shows Dozzell using a series of weight exercises to strengthen his knee, indluding squats, Romanian deadlifts, weighted lunges and the Jacobs Ladder climbing machine.
