'If It's Football, It's Vital'

DRFC Brooker looking for return to side

Steve Brooker is once again ready to resurrect his injury plagued Rovers career and is pushing for a place in the squad at Scunthorpe next Saturday.

The former Bristol City striker was hoping to put a two-year injury nightmare behind him at the start of this season and he was involved in Rovers pre season friendlies.

He finally made his first competitive start for the club in the Carling Cup clash with Accrington Stanley in August.

The striker as also made three substitute appearances in the opening two weeks of the season but he hasn`t been seen in the side since the defeat to Cardiff on August 21st after suffering a number of niggling injuries.

Brooker is now hopeful of getting involved in the first team again, speaking in the Sheffield Star, he said, 'I've been back training with the lads for over two weeks now without any reaction. I've also been doing a bit of extra training because I'm still a bit behind on my fitness. I'm feeling good and I'm just looking to work hard and get myself fitter every day."

With Rovers having no reserve side, Brooker was hoping to take part in a behind closed doors friendly against Chesterfield recently but was forced to pull out after picking up another injury in training.

With Rovers having no game for two weeks due to the international break, Brooker is hoping that the club can arrange a friendly this week to improve his fitness but might be interested in a loan move to gain some much needed match fitness if required, 'The games are handy for the lads who aren't playing regularly.
'I've not ruled out going out on loan to get some games under my belt," he continued.

Brooker is in the last year of the two and a half year contract he signed with the club in January 2009 and so far, he`s still only made four appearances after needing surgery on both knee and ankle injuries.

think the best thing we can do is send him out on loan. He needs some time on the pitch and get some confidence in front of goal. I was so excited when he came on and scored at Watford (Then again we had hardly scored all season!)

What a waste of money he's turned out to be, I couldn't believe we actually signed him whilst he was still injured.
