The defender, working hard in his bid to return to action, admits it’s been a frustrating season to date.
Coleraine return to the Showgrounds to host Dungannon on January 23.
“It’s like starting a new season all over again,” said Adam.
“You play a bit, then don’t train, then play again. You lose match sharpness but it’s the same for everyone.
“These are hard times for everyone because of the pandemic.
“From a football perspective it’s been very stop start but the testing should help and everyone will feel safer.”
Mullan has missed a lot of football with his knee injury.
But he is continuing to put in the effort in rehab in a bid to return to the fold.
“We were just starting to build a bit of momentum before the latest break,” he continued.
“A lot of the injured players are available now. It’s good to see Josh (Carson) back and that only really leaves myself and Ben (Doherty) out and I wish him a speedy recovery.”
Competition for places will be hotting up as the Bannsiders bid to continue their winning run against the Swifts.
“There’s two good players for every position and that’s what you want.
“We look strong in every position now, everyone is working hard and confidence is high again.”
