Nelsen Out For the Month

Nelsen Out For the Month

Having missed Blackburn Rovers' clash with West Ham United through injury at the weekend Ryan Nelsen will miss the rest of the month… there is no immediate cause for concern however!

As a precautionary measure Nelsen was withdrawn from the FA Cup Quarter Final meeting with Manchester City at half time after complaining of tightness in his problematic hamstring. This meant him missing the West Ham clash at the weekend and he will also now miss New Zealand's games with Costa Rica and Venezuela.

Mark Hughes however is not concerned and expects the Admiral to return in time for our next game, he said:

"He's got a little bit of scar tissue which will continue to free itself.

"So when that happens he gets a bit of a reaction. The good news is that it isn't a re-occurrence of his injury over the summer.

"He wasn't available for us against West Ham and he won't be travelling to New Zealand as we have to rest him so he gets a clear break and we can welcome him back after the internationals."

Meanwhile Rovers defender Eddie Nolan has joined Stockport County on loan.

The 18-year-old Irish youngster has joined Stockport on a month's loan and has gone straight into the League Two sides squad for their match with Bristol Rovers on Tuesday.

Nolan is very highly rated at Ewood Park so a loan spell will do him and Rovers no harm at all.

It's good news that the injury is a re-occurrence of the previous one, but would the club admit this just yet if it were?!?! Lets just hope the Admiral will be back for our next game, and the vital games thereafter.

As for Nolan the move will give him valuable first team experience and can only benefit all parties.

I was reading that this was a twinge of the ham string and full credit to NZ who have allowed him to stay at home and rest, in order to help his league team, a lot of other countries would have took along anyway. The lad Nolan will get some good experience which will be good for him. I also read that Rafa wants Spanish stlyle leagues where the bigger teams reserve teams play in the lower divisions, now i know this has nothing to do with this site but some one in the FA has said its an insult, but I for one think its a good idea, it brings players through better in competive games. Now u'll get supporters of lower league teams complain that its at their expense but i dont believe it is, there could be amgalimation of these teams with the bigger clubs, keep the name and history but have the money suppiled by the premiership clubs, instead of feeder clubs abroad you could have the likes of development clubs here in england
