Blackburn Rovers skipper Ryan Nelsen has admitted that he let himself and Rovers down by continuing to play when he wasn't up to it.
Before taking a demanded rest Nelsen kept playing despite knowing he wasn't really doing himself justice (when struggling with his hamstring problem) as his performances were often showing, so in hindsight he wishes that he had handled things differently.
Nelsen told the Lancashire Telegraph: "I kept wanting to play and I didn't do myself or the injury justice.
"It was stupid on my part because every time I was asked to play I wanted to play and I said 'yes' and I probably shouldn't have.
"Hindsight is a good thing, but obviously my performances weren't good enough by my standards and in the end it got too bad.
"It was extremely hard, but the pain got to the stage where I couldn't even jog or do anything.
"I was letting my team down and myself down because I set pretty high standards."
It takes a bigger man to admit that he was in the wrong as God basically has done so here, so he deserves a fair bit of credit doesn't he. He is NEARLY ready for a first team return, which WILL do us the world of good, and he says he is feeling good.
The New Zealand International added: "I just have to work on my match fitness now. I've got my explosiveness and my power back and I feel pretty good."
