Steven Reid on the Road to Recovery
Having missed most of the season though injury Blackburn Rovers midfielder Steven Reid is making a rapid recovering from his back injury and could return early in January.
After six weeks of complete rest the Republic of Ireland International has been given the green light to resume light training so could return early in January all being well.
Mark Hughes said:
"We've had some good news on Steven. He went to see a specialist earlier this week and he's been given the go-ahead to start his rehab again.
"Obviously, he's just spent six weeks doing absolutely nothing so hopefully he'll now step things up and get back very quickly."
With it originally feared Reidy may be out until February or March, if he even returned at all this season this could be a massive boost for Rovers who have sorely missed his midfield influence.
