‘This is what we like to hear’ – Many Blackburn Rovers fans react to positive player news

Elliott Bennett has returned to training following his three-month injury lay-off – with the Rovers captain hinting that he hopes to be back playing in early January.

Bennett featured more than 40 times for the Ewood Park outfit last season, but has been restricted to just one first-team appearance this term.

That came during Blackburn’s victory at Derby County back in late-September, but the midfielder suffered ankle ligament damage in training soon after and was forced to undergo surgery.

However, Bennett was back on the grass at Rovers’ training ground on Tuesday morning, and took to Twitter to provide supporters with an update on his problem.

He said: “1st day on the grass today and boy did it feel good! Got to trust in the process and tick the next stage of boxes but hoping to be back with the boys early 2021″.

Whilst Bennett is unlikely to feature in either of Blackburn’s festive fixtures against Sheffield Wednesday or Huddersfield, the skipper might target a return to action in Rovers’ FA Cup third round tie against Doncaster Rovers in early January.

Here’s how the Ewood Park faithful reacted to his post on social media:
