Reid Receives Injury Boost

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Steven Reid has been fortunate after scans revealed he hadn't damaged his hamstring in reserves action this week.

Reid felt pain in his hamstring during the first half of Tuesday night's reserve match with Liverpool, and he was immediately taken off by manager Glyn Hodges as a precaution.

'They couldn't find anything at all on the scan so it might just have been some old scar tissue releasing itself,' said chairman John Williams.

'They will scan Steven again in the next few days just to make sure they haven't missed anything and, assuming that's okay, he could be back in training again early next week.'

It will likely put his return date back a week but either way at least it isn't the worst case scenario.

How bizarre?!?! Fair enough the first bit should have been filtered out as I said a "naughty word" but not the second!!!
Anyway, this is potentially GREAT news and the slice of luck Reidy has needed, so fingers firmly crossed.

Good for him that its not that serious. He would have been gutted to be back in the treatment room again so soon after returning.
