Warne hoping break will heal Defenders

Last updated : 20 March 2020 By Millersmad

With another 6 weeks until the return of football, boss Paul Warne is hoping that at least one of his defenders could return from injury.

“Icky went and saw a specialist in London and he convinced Iky through a long chat that he does not need the operation and has enough fibres in his knee to withstand." Warne told the Yorkshire Post.

“It will take eight to 10 weeks rehabilitation and potentially I am hopeful that Iky will be available by the time we kick a ball again. He is walking pain-free, which is a really positive thing and I am pleased on that.

“Robbo is still resting his broken foot. But he has another scan in three to four weeks and if he gets the all-clear from that, he could pick up his training as well.

“Potentially, in four, five or six weeks time, we will be closer to having a lot of our defenders back.”
