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

There is a god.
boddingtonblue
I agree boddington the Admiral is god ;) Knew what you meant.
Hughes Da Man
Im ready for Reidy and Jay Roberts coming back and then we will be ready to rock. Go Rovers!!!
MikeyGamst
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.
Hughes Da Man
Great news! On last season's showing he really is quality!
sandgroanun
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.
boddingtonblue
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.
Hughes Da Man
I still beleive that Roberts has been the biggest miss for the club in the 1st half of the season, his partnership with Benni will be explosive when it gets going. Reid is a player that i really like but has to ge tied down to one position as he is kinda all over the place sometimes in midfield and defence.
Clint
I'd rather he got fully fit than we rushed him back and lost him for a further 6 months!!! likewise the others! A fualt Birmingham slipped up with as they started to struggle causing further injuries, and thus more losses!
govtpros
Without doubt, rushing him back will be VERY bad, although I think he'll probably be ready before the end of January though, as I say managers seem to add a couple of weeks to long-term injuries so hopes aren't raised.
Hughes Da Man
cant wait to see him back! he has the ability to steady the ship
im_a_blackburn_rover
He'll give us a boost thats for sure.
