Conor Henderson returns to action for Arsenal

Republic of Ireland under-21 international Conor Henderson played his first game in over eight months coming back from a knee injury.

The 20-year-old midfielder had been on the verge of a breakthrough at Arsenal, but damaged his knee ligaments in pre-season against 1 FC Koln, and missed the entire 2011-12 campaign. Henderson made his first team debut for the Gunners last year, playing the full 90 minutes against Leyton Orient in the FA Cup, and started to feature on the bench towards the end of the season.

Henderson made his comeback on Tuesday, playing the final fifteen minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly with Reading. It is very unlikely that he will return to the senior setup this season, but he could be in line to make an appearance in the final two games with the reserves – against Everton and Newcastle United next month.
