Superman hands Rovers a big boost

Superman hands Rovers a big boost

Phil Jones has handed Blackburn a timely boost by making a much faster than expected recovery from his leg injury sustained before Christmas.

Jonesy was expected to be out of action for the rest of the season but the word on the street is that he could even be back within the month.

Steve told Rovers.co.uk - 'Phil is back out on the pitch working with Dave Fevre so he's making good progress,'

'He's coming on quicker than we thought, so hopefully in three or four weeks he'll be available for selection.

'That is another great boost, as he was unfortunate to pick up the injury that he had, but he's a young man and he's healing quick and that is something we are really looking forward to, getting him back in the fold.'

The big question Steve faces is where to play Phil, central midfield or central defence?

Either way this is blinding news.

Something tells me this was always the case.. and the fact this was announced just after the window closed.. seems to back up my suspicions..

Top news, could use the lad to show Samba how to defend after recent performances. Can't wait to have him back in the team.

We shouldnt rush him back, if we amass enough point over next few games i'd personally keep him out as long as possible to ensure there is no chance of a recurrance
