Roberts Not Setting Targets

Roberts Not Setting Targets

Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts is refusing to set himself any targets as he battles back from his latest injury setback.

The broken metatarsal in his right foot is an injury Roberts is all too familiar with having sustained the same injury earlier in his career but in the left foot. Roberts said:

"As soon as I fell badly, I knew something had happened.

"When I couldn't put any weight on my foot I think I knew what it was there and then, because I'd done it on the left-hand side about five or six years ago when I was playing for West Brom. I had an operation on it back then and ended up having it pinned.

"So we've done the same thing here, I've just had the operation and since I had the operation on the left-hand side, I've never had any problems with it, so hopefully it'll be the same with the right-hand side.

"After it happened, I went straight to hospital, had it scanned, came back and got the operation booked in the next day, so it was really good from that point of view and the recovery's going well.

"January/February time has been mentioned, but we're not exactly sure just yet. Everyone heals at a different rate, some people get back quicker and some people take a bit longer. I don't want to really put myself under any pressure and because it's a bone injury, there's nothing you can do about it. So we'll just take our time and see what happens."

The £3 million summer arrival from Wigan Athletic has endured a frustrating start to his Rovers career thus far having already had a spell on the sidelines after picking up a groin injury in September. Roberts added:

"The most disappointing manner of it is that I can't help the team at the moment and that's very frustrating.

"It's been very stop-start for me since I arrived, but hopefully I'll get back soon and be able to help the team on the pitch.

"It's not worked out the way I would have liked, but I'm enjoying my time here, I'm enjoying playing for this club and hopefully I'll be back fit soon!"

I really like Roberts and think that he has A LOT to offer Rovers. Once he if fully over the latest injury set back I'm sure that we will start seeing the very best of Jason Roberts (which we have already seen glimpses of) and the kind of form that convinced Mark Hughes to splash out on the Grenadian International in the summer.

What are your thoughts on Roberts and the impact he has, and will make? Leave your comments below…

Lets hope that Roberts is back fully fit and ready soon. He has a lot to offer and we WILL see the VERY, VERY best of him soon I'm sure.
