DRFC Injury list shows signs of improvement

Doncaster Rovers long run with injuries shows signs of improving after a horrendous run with injuries during 2011.

Rovers at one stage in February had fourteen players on the sidelines through injury and they went into this season with eight players already missing.

The situation was made worse in the opening two games of the season, when the clubs leading goalscorer for the past two seasons Billy Sharp suffered ankle ligament damage. James Hayter and Ryan Mason also joined him on the sidelines, also through injury.

The situation now seems to be easing. James Hayter returned to action in the Carling cup tie with Leeds United at the end of August, after missing four games.

James O`Connor returned from a long-term injury in the same game and he started his first game of the season in the defeat at Cardiff City last weekend.

Brian Stock and Shelton Martis are closing in on a first team return and both completed 90 minutes in a behind closed doors friendly in midweek.

Mark Wilson also played in midweek as he returns to full fitness.

The midfielder missed most of pre season after suffering a injury in the game at Barrow.

He came off the bench of Cardiff for his third substitute appearance in the last four games.

Four more players are now back in training. Billy Sharp, Ryan Mason, Paul Keegan and Adam Lockwood are all running as they continue their rehabilitation from injury.

James Chambers, Martin Woods and Chris Brown will be hoping to step up their rehabilitation from their respective surgery in the near future.

Great to finally see players on the way back. We just need to make sure we are picking up points whilst they get themselves fit.

At last, we just need to make sure more don't go on it.
