DRFC Mixed news from the treatment room

There is mixed news on the injury front for Doncaster Rovers with two players set for a spell on the sidelines whilst another two are closing in on a return.

Rovers could be without striker Chris Brown for up to two months after he suffered a knee ligament injury and boss Brian Flynn says it will be a minimum of four weeks. Speaking on Radio Sheffield, Flynn said, "Chris has got a knee ligament injury, which is looking like a minimum of four weeks and a maximum of eight."

Flynn also lost defender Andy Griffin during the game with MK Dons on Tuesday night, with the experienced defender being withdrawn at half time and Flynn expects to be without him for a few weeks. "Andy Griffin looks like he could be out for a few weeks so the numbers are depleted." continued Flynn.

Striker Billy Paynter also came off during the game with MK Dons after he reported to the ground on Tuesday feeling unwell. "Billy reported for the game not feeling well but he was desperate to play. He gave his all for us and he ran as much as he could but he wasn`t feeling 100%. It is probably more of a head cold than anything else and he will be ok for Crawley."

Some good news coming out of the Keepmoat Stadium is the imminent return of Iain Hume and David Syers. The pair have been missing in recent weeks through injury and Flynn says the pair could be back as soon as the game with Crawley Town on Monday night. "Hume and Syers have both done really well this week and they are pushing themselves to be ready in time for Crawley and if not that game then the next one against Yeovil."

There was also good news on Tuesday night with the return of midfielder Martin Woods who has been missing for the last two months with a thigh injury.

Woods completed 90 minutes against MK Dons.

Is this just a coincidence that the injuries have started to mount since Mal Purchase left?
