Eric Black talks to Millers Player...
Rotherham United captain Lee Frecklington continues to make good progress from a calf problem which has ruled him out of action in recent weeks.
The midfielder initially picked up the injury in the recent draw against Charlton Athletic which ruled him out for the last four Sky Bet Championship fixtures.
After initially making good progress the former Peterborough ace had a setback in training, but after reporting in at the start of this week, Caretaker Manager Eric Black confirmed that following scans on the troublesome calf the skipper is now firmly on the road to recovery.
“It is a grade one injury which is around three or four weeks, but he is a week into that already,” Black told Millers Player.
“We were fearing the worst that it might be a grade two injury but it is a grade one, so he will be two to three weeks away. It is unfortunate that it is another part of his calf, so we just have to make sure there are no repercussions.”
The Millers have been boosted by the return to full training of Paul Green who has been out with an ankle problem, whilst Farrend Rawson is also in full training after suffering from cramp in the recent game with Burnley.
