Reid Knock Sums Up Poor Weekend
Following four consecutive victories, making it six wins in seven, and the spine of the team, Ryan Nelsen, Steven Reid and Jason Roberts, nearing full fitness, everything at Ewood Park was looking rosy.
How drastically that picture has been distorted since Saturday. A disappointing performance at home against Arsenal meant the club lost three points, and didn`t exactly shower themselves in glory and that has now been accompanied by the news that Steven Reid has suffered a set-back.
Now I am not prophesising doom on the basis of a single result and a bit of bad news but it just goes to show how rapidly the game can change and ultimately affect the outlook of a side.
It has been reported today that Steven Reid broke down in training on Friday with a suspected knee injury. The extent of the injury isn`t yet clear but everyone at Ewood is hopeful it will be nothing more than a slight strain, brought on by his return to full training.
Mark Hughes has been quoted as saying: "Steven injured his knee in training. We are seeing the medical people and he will have a scan and, hopefully, we will get some good news."
Further news is likely to be released later in the week following scans and medical examinations. Let`s hope that it will be good news greeting Hughes.
