Blackburn Rovers midfielder Steven Reid is stepping up his recovery from his serious knee injury, and should return to training next week, and may even play by the end of the month!
Rovers managed without Reid last season (but he was missed MASSIVELY!!!) firstly due to his back injury, then his freak training ground injury in January when he ruptured his cruciate knee ligament.
However, after stepping up his recovery programme (with the help of the great physiotherapy team in place at Rovers) he is even being pencilled in for the Intertoto Cup Match at the end of the month, and is looking like returning to full training on Monday.
Rovers Chairman John Williams told the Lancashire Telegraph:
"I spoke to Steven yesterday and he told me he's feeling good so, all being well, he should be able to join in with the rest of the group from Monday.
"The physio's have said he's done ever so well to get himself back in contention this quickly.
"I know all the injured players - Robbie Savage, Andre Ooijer and Steven Reid - were desperate to get back for the start of pre-season and they've all worked incredibly hard to achieve that.
"It's particularly pleasing to have Steven back because he also missed four months of last season with a back injury, before he injured his knee, so he's been out for the best part of a year."
