Blackburn midfielder David Dunn is looking forward to the season ahead as he bids to return from injury.
The 29-year-old endured an injury-plagued campaign last term, making just 17 appearances in all competitions.
He missed the season's run-in after having an operation on his Achilles and is now targeting a return, along with fellow Rovers players Brett Emerton and Steven Reid.
Dunn told Sky Sports News: "Obviously there's a couple of us this year, obviously Brett Emerton had a serious knee injury, likewise did Steven Reid and there's myself - so we'll be in there working hard all summer.
"We've got a great backroom staff, great physios at the club, great doctor so I am just hoping that all three of us can get back into contention pretty quickly."
Dunn also praised manager Sam Allardyce for keeping the club in the Premier League and is hoping Rovers do better next term.
He added: "Without being too unkind, we didn't have a great season this year.
"But we feel that next year we can really push on.
"He (Allardyce) has done a great job and he has stabilised the club and give us at least another season in that top-flight."
