DRFC Webster ready to give it his best shot

DRFC Webster ready to give it his best shot

Doncaster Rovers defender Byron Webster is looking forward to challenging for a place in the first team after eight month`s on the sidelines.

Webster suffered a stop start campaign in his first season at the Keepmoat.

The 23 year old made his first league start in the away game at Sheffield United last October and suffered an elbow injury that required surgery.

When he returned in January, he made three substitute appearances before breaking a metatarsal in training, an injury that has kept him out until September.

He played his first game in a behind closed doors friendly against Chesterfield last month and was then a surprise inclusion in Rovers first team game at Coventry on Tuesday night when he was an unused substitute.

Despite having a number of options in the central defensive area, long-term injuries to Wayne Thomas and James Chambers have him on the verge of a first team call up although not yet being fully match fit.

Although he is not yet fully fit, he would be willing to step into the starting line up if required. Speaking in the Sheffield Star, he said, 'It's still very much like pre-season for me and I probably couldn't play a full game just yet but obviously if I was picked I'd give it my best shot."

Webster showed his fighting spirit last season when he suffered his elbow injury in the game at Sheffield United. After requiring lengthy treatment for the injury in the first half of the game, he battled through to complete the ninety minutes with the aid of a pain killing injection.

Having so far made only seven appearances for the club he is determined to impress this season as he is in the last year of his two-year contract.

I liked what I saw of him last season. He's a big lad and I think a run of games in the side would do him the world of good.

Martis is also out so that leaves us just with O'Connor, Hird and Lockwood. Might be in sooner than he thinks.
