Hannah Cain: Leicester forward on struggling to return from ACL injury after year out

Leicester forward Hannah Cain says she didn't think she would return to football after rupturing her anterior cruciate ligament.

Cain sustained a hamstring injury while recovering from the ACL injury, leaving her sidelined for over a year.

"You don't think it will get any worse and then it does," she told BBC Radio Leicester.

The 23-year-old made her first start since recovery in Saturday's Women's Super League triumph over Brighton.
