Stech Returns To Training

Stech Returns To Training

Goakeeper Marek Stech has resumed handling work in training as he bids to fully recover from the two broken bones in his hand.

The stopper is hopeful that he'll be available for a first team return in time for the game against Doncaster Rovers next month.

The injury was unfortunately picked up when he accidentally punched Byron Webster in the back of the head when attempting to clear a corner, and Stech came off the worst from the incident.

Following an operation and rehabilitation work, he's nearing a return to first team action and will no doubt be looking to do all he can to displace on loan Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

Whilst the target is the trip to Doncaster, I doubt he will be rushed and if he does make that date, it's more likely he'll be on the bench for a slower re-introduction.

Speaking to the Western Gazetee the keeper explained that he had started light handling last week, and the aim is to see how he deals with things on a daily basis, judge it from there, and then for a bit of progression each and every week.

The keeper had returned to handling duty earlier in the month, but suffered a reaction so had to take a break from it for a couple of days, so steady progress and care is the order of the day at the moment, and he feels good again now, and the swelling has gone down, so fingers crossed.

'Hopefully we won't have another reaction so we can keep progressing. We've looking for me to be back in three to four weeks and we will be aiming for me to be available for the Doncaster game.'

He also admitted that the injury couldn't have come at a worst time for him because he was enjoying his football and life in the Championship, even if he ended with a loss to Birmingham, he was looking forward to building on the wins against Millwall in the league, and Southend in the League Cup and really wanted to kick on following our promotion, but sadly it wasn't to be for the 23 year old.

Hopefully he can kick on now and get back to form.
