Ryan Nelsen Back in Rovers Training

Ryan Nelsen Back in Rovers Training

Ryan Nelsen has given Blackburn Rovers a timely boost by returning to training; he should be available for first team selection by the end of January.

Having been hampered by injuries since the tail end of last season the Admiral has been unable to play any part of the season thus far and underwent an operation on his hamstring injury in September. The New Zealand International is now back in training and Mark Hughes is obviously delighted, being hopeful of having him back playing by the end of January. Sparky said:

"Ryan is now having some good sessions with the group. Obviously he is not allowed to sprint and go flat out. But he is looking like a footballer again, which we are all pleased about.

"He is very positive and it is a case of building up the strength in the hamstring and the damaged area.

"If he is back before the end of January we will be delighted."

We don't want to rush things, as if we do it will set him back and more than likely see him out for the season but hopefully he will be able to return before the timescale Sparky predicts, you know what these managers are like they almost always add a few weeks to the projected return of a player...

Clearly the Admiral has been missed, his leadership and organisational qualities at the back are hard to replace so the sooner he is back the better but arguably we've been hampered more with our midfield and forward areas so all being well these will be rectified soon also by having players back and maybe even players arriving in January?

This is a huge boost... wait for this man to come back and then watch Rovers go. We will be ten times more solid at the back.

This is good news hopefully his return, more hopefully in the New Yr will be the kick start that Rovers badly need, I think that getting used to playing in Europe then a league match has caught the team out a bit, as with the injuries and suspensions the lack of depth in the team has kinda been highlighted, especailly in midfield

Roberts has been a MASSIVE miss, his pace, power and determination lead to so many goals from him, and create chances for others. He'll shine when fit.

All very upbeat,however,just to add a note of realism here,Mr Roberts has everything to prove,he has done nothing yet for us, a player who has skipped from club to club,even having a trial with us previously,this is make or brake for him,no pun intended.

I know you have to look at it that way but I'm more than convinced he'll prove that he's an ideal partner for Benni. I don't think it was a coincidence that our best spell this season came when Benni and Roberts were the pairing.
