Allen backs Finnigan return

05 Nov 2008 - 07:07:18

Cheltenham Town manager Martin Allen is hopeful that injury-jinxed midfielder John Finnigan will be back in first-team action within a matter of weeks.

The 32-year-old has not featured for the Robins since October 2007 due to ongoing heel problems, but lasted half an hour of a recent practice match against Bristol Rovers.

Allen told the Western Daily Press: "It has been a very frustrating time for John.

"I am hoping he will stay injury-free now because he is a very good player, an influential leader and a good character to have around the dressing room.

"He is well ahead of schedule and is champing at the bit to get back. I think he will be ready well before Christmas because he is that sort of courageous person."
