Rovers' injury recoveries put on ice

06 January 2010 03:32
Rovers were unable to train at all on Tuesday, meaning long-term absentee Steve Brooker (Achilles) and midfielder Martin Woods (groin) could not continue their rehabilitation.

Club physio John Dickens told the Sheffield Star: "Steve had just started running for the first time since his Achilles tendon operation and was progressing well when the weather turned.

"He can't use a treadmill and he's had to go back to the bike and the cross-trainer until we can get him running again.

"Martin is back running and again we've been held up by the weather, but he should be back training in a week or two."

Meanwhile, defender Adam Lockwood (foot) and youngster Waide Fairhurst (ankle ligament) also remain on the sidelines and Dickens added: "Waide will be out for another three or four weeks."
