DRFC Injury list grows longer

DRFC Injury list grows longer

The Doncaster Rovers treatment table at the moment is read hot with the side having twelve players currently undergoing treatment.

Thankfully Rovers have this weekend off due to international duty, giving physio John Dickens time to work on some of the injured.

Out of the twelve, seven are hoping to return to training next week.

James Coppinger (calf), John Oster (hamstring), Quinton Fortune (knee), James Hayter (dead leg), Dean Shiels (ankle), Gareth Roberts (foot) and John Spicer (knee) are the ones hoping to be on the training pitch next week and not on the treatment table.

Mark Wilson damaged his knee in the first half at Sheffield United next week and is having an ultrasound on Friday to assess the damage.

Bryon Webster suffered a elbow injury in the same game and somehow managed to play through the pain will have surgery next week and is likely to be out of action for around a month.

Fellow defender Adam Lockwood suffered broken bones in his foot against Swansea and is currently in a protective boot. The club are still waiting for the results of his scan but he`s another who looks likely to be out for at least a month.

Influential captain Brian Stock is recovering after his ankle surgery and is unlikely to play again for at least four month`s.

The only bits of good news is there`s a light at the end of the tunnel for long term injured Sean McDaid and Steve Brooker.

McDaid who has had nothing but back luck since originally damaging his knee nearly eighteen month`s ago is back in light training, it will still be some time though before he`s close to first team action.

Brooker who originally signed for Rovers last November and scored within ten minutes of his debut at Watford then had to return to his parent club Bristol City after suffering an injury in training.

He signed for Rovers during the transfer window in January and as still yet to see first team action after a number of injuries and operations.

Brooker is now starting his rehabilitation programme, it`s unlikely that he will return to training with the squad until the end of November.

With Rovers already having one of the smallest squads in the Championship boss Sean O`Driscoll may have to seek some replacements with some loan signings before the next game against Barnsley on October 17th.

Looking pretty grim especially with four games in fourteen days before the end of the month.
