Nagy and Vyner return to training

Ádám Nagy and Zak Vyner have returned to training at Failand in the final stages of their return to play concussion protocols.

Both suffered head injuries against QPR earlier this month and subsequently missed the 3-0 win away to Birmingham City on Saturday, where Liam Walsh and Callum O’Dowda came off the bench to mark their returns to the first team.

Nagy and Vyner are now back in training, albeit without heading the ball, as Manager Nigel Pearson works with his squad ahead of the final 10 Sky Bet Championship games, starting with Wednesday’s trip to Blackburn Rovers (7.45pm KO).

Offering an update on his midfield duo, Pearson told Robins TV: “They are training with us today (Monday) without heading the ball, so with anything like that it’s about getting it right for their longer-term health.

“We’re very conscious of that and both players and looking forward to being back with the group. They’re positive characters and they felt a bit left out at the weekend but they are still pleased for their teammates - that’s an important aspect of how we develop the team.”

There is further positive news on Tommy Rowe who has rejoined training after recovering from a knee ligament injury at the end of January.

And centre-back Nathan Baker also returned to training in recent weeks and played for the Under-23s last week as they beat QPR 2-0.

He’s another player itching to get back on to the field and Pearson added: “For him now we have to make sure his training programme really does get his final preparations for re-entering first team action.

“There’s loads of games coming up and an international break but it sets us up for the run-in. We’ve set good standards at the weekend and it’s important we try to replicate the good things but also try to improve to.”

Blackburn Rovers versus City will be streamed live this Wednesday night on Robins TV. The Matchday Show, which costs just £10, starts at 7.15pm.
