Roberts Update

27 February 2013

Striker on road to recovery

Jason Roberts is continuing to recover from his hip injury, with plenty of hard work being put in at the Royals training ground.

Robbo has been sidelined since December and, although no time scale can be put on this particular injury, Roberts says the staff are doing everything they can do to get him back to full fitness.

"It's going slowly with the hip - there's no time scale on it but as soon as we possibly can do we will do," he said. "We'll keep working hard on the training ground to get it right.

"It's been very slow but that's the nature of the injury - it's not a cut and dry one. We're working as hard as we can to get it right."

With 11 games still to be played in this Barclays Premier League season, Roberts says the side will will be attacking each game with a typically positive attitude - starting this Saturday at Everton.

"There's still games to go and big games to be played. We're positive about it and we just look to the next game - it sounds like a cliche but all we do is look at the next game, that's how we do it.

"In that dressing room we stick together through success and also when things are hard - that's when you find out about people.

"We attack every game with a positive attitude, there's no other way at this football club. Everton are a top side - yes, we have beaten them at home but you have to respect their ability and their players."
