DRFC - Rovers to take it steady with Brooker

DRFC - Rovers to take it steady with Brooker

Doncaster Rovers will not rush striker Steve Brooker back from his ankle surgery after he missed the first day of pre season training.

Brooker who has endured an injury nightmare over the past few seasons is being allowed to take it much steadier in pre season in a bid to end his nightmare.

Club physio Jon Dickens speaking in the Sheffield Star said 'Steve has only recently started his running programme. How soon he can join in with the rest of the lads depends on how quickly his running comes on".

The 28 year old joined Rovers in January after a brief loan spell in November when he scored on his debut against Watford within ten minutes of coming off the bench.

Unfortunately Brooker suffered an injury in training the following week and was sent back to his parent club Bristol City.

Rovers signed the forward in January even though he was still struggling for fitness and quickly diagnosed that he needed surgery on a problematic ankle injury which ruled him out for the rest of the season, continuing in the Sheffield Star Dickens said 'Obviously we want Steve back playing as quickly as possible, but I think Sean (O'Driscoll) is happy with the fact that we'd rather him miss a couple of games rather than try and rush him back too soon and risk a possible break down."

Rovers fans will be looking forward to the strikers return to fitness after he became an instant hit during his very short appearance at Watford.

Lets hope we can get him right although I think he's just going to be one of those players always on the treatment table.
