Injury Boost For Beattie

Injury Boost For Beattie

Manager James Beattie has received a welcome boost ahead of our game this weekend against Tranmere Rovers with news that two players have returned to training.

Goalkeeper Andrew Dawber and defender Michael Liddle have both been sidelined with injury for the past few weeks but they have now returned to first team training with the group.

Speaking to the Official Site after holding the session, Beattie said.

'Dawbs has trained today after being out with his medial knee ligament injury since his dubious tackle in the pre season friendly with Blackburn.'

Beattie goes on to say that it's just something he has to learn, and that he has to control his mentality to not do things like that in games because they rarely end well.

'I think that's the biggest thing he needs to concentrate on at the moment. I still have really high hopes for him, he's been to a few clubs in the Premier League that really rate him so I'll keep working on that thing.'

The gaffer ends by saying that really and his age he's still a baby and in goalkeeping terms he's still a newborn at 19 so it's about taking that raw talent and potential and honing and refining it but he remains confident he has the mentality to do that and take things on board.

As for Liddle.

'Lidds had picked up a medial ligament injury too a few weeks ago but he's back now and will hopefully be staking a claim for the left back spot. He's a valued member of the squad and we need everyone to pull together and try to get us these result that I think we so deserve.'
