Redshaw Steps Up Recovery

6 October 2016

Striker Progressing On Injury Front

Gary Bowyer is delighted to see that Jack Redshaw has made a major step in his recovery from injury this week.

The striker, who is yet to feature this season, has been blighted by shin splints since arriving at Bloomfield Road in the summer of 2015. 

Having played through the pain barrier last season, the 25-year-old has been given time to rectify the problem and has now started running pain free. 

"We're delighted for him, it's great to see him on the training ground," the manager said.   

"Because of what happened last year and in pre-season with him we're not putting any time or any pressure on him in terms of when he has to return. He's going slowly at the moment and he's being monitored very, very carefully by Phil (the physio). We'll build it up step-by-step for him."

The news is a big plus in the long-term for The Seasiders, while Andy Taylor is one of two defenders set to return imminently for the match against Cambridge United this Saturday.   

"Andy has broken his nose but it's looking like he should be available for the weekend and Clark Robertson should be back as well," Bowyer confirmed.
