Alan Stubbs talks to www.themillers.co.uk...Defender Aïmen Belaïd has stepped up his recovery as he aims to join in with full training at the start of next week.
While the majority of the first-team squad enjoyed some relaxation at the Millers’ training headquarters in Poland this afternoon, Belaïd was joined by fitness coach Paul Warne as he looks to get himself in a position to resume full training.
The Tunisian international isn’t the only one progressing, with striker Jonson Clarke-Harris also firmly on the road to recovery after picking up a knee injury in the friendly against Parkgate.
“Aïmen is doing well and he is stepping up his rehab every day and he's done a little bit more today,” boss Alan Stubbs confirmed to www.themillers.co.uk
“We're hoping he'll look to join in full time on Monday when we get back.
“Jono got a little bit of a knock on his knee and had a little bit of swelling in it from the game, but that has been receding a little bit each day. We just want to let that settle down and we'll see where we are.
“We didn't feel the need for him to go for a scan which is a good thing, and we're just waiting of the swelling to go and the initial pain and soreness that he's had to go and we'll look to start him jogging again and we don't think it will be too long.”
Stubbs received a further boost with the news that both Danny Ward and Joe Mattock are set to resume full training tomorrow, after both were rested as a precaution during yesterday’s victory over Miedz Legnica.
