At the RRDS 08/09 promotion team event at the Strathearn hotel last night (really good night btw) and  Lennox, Bene and Davo were there.  There was a tongue in cheek suggestion that Davo picks up booking around now onwards so he's suspended in December and can get Christmas and new year off.:lol:  

On a more serious not Lennox and Bene were asked about their injuries.

Lennox reckons he will back soon possibly available for selection at some point in October.

Bene is still on crutches but not in a cast and didn't even seem to be wearing a protective  boot, he seems to think he will be back in as little as 4 weeks. Seems he has very little swelling and by his own admission is a quick healer.

On our other injury McHattie has developed what is known as a "sportsmanship groin" injury and apparently not uncommon an occurrence after a hernia op.  The procedure he had this week should see him back sooner than later. Chances are it may be around the festive season.

If all that injury news comes true and we have Lennox and Bene both back for late October/Beginning of November at the very least then I have an erection.

Including today that might be only 4 more league games (5 at worst) without them.

Made even better by not having to put up with McHattie until possibly the new year :lol:

If it ends up on that time scale that'd be utterly fantastic. In my opinion, Bene is the best defender in the league and it'd be great to have Lennox back as soon as possible.

Remember how McKeown improved under McKinnon? Smith might have the same effect on McHattie when he returns to full fitness. It's way too early to write off McHattie.

I hope so too. While it's entirely fair to say he hasn't set the heather on fire it's also true that for the vast majority of the last 12 months he hasn't been fully fit. He played from before Christmas last season unable to train fully as he was nursing a hernia injury. That same injury was a factor in this current injury.  I say we wait until he is fully fit before we judge him. 

We had no effective cover for McHattie last season we saw spells of Thomson and Bene used at LB and Thomson wasn't even as good last season at RB as he'd been previously near mind playing on his wrong side and Bene just isn't fullback material.

Ground out a result today. We need a centre back/left back to allow Robertson to return to midfield.

Easy to see we need him back in midfield, just don't seem to have the movement

Next couple of games, and last two in quarter are against the other two 'form' sides,  hopefully if their recent results are anything to go by they play a more expansive game offensively which should suit us more and make for a better spectacle.

 

Win those two and our 1st 1/4 record will be P9 W8 D1 L0, anyone predict that while a goal down in Alloa?!

Today The Jim McMillan lounge gave the Rovers a cheque for Five Thousand pounds, bringing the total that the club has donated to the team over £130,000. and this is with a membership of between 40 and 50.  Just thought you would like to know this.
