BEN Marshall is ready to hand Blackburn Rovers a major injury boost by returning before the end of the season.

The winger was expected to miss the rest of the campaign after sustaining ankle-ligament damage in the 1-1 draw at home to Derby County on January 25.

But Marshall has delighted the Rovers medical team with a speedy recovery.

And, having enjoyed light sessions at Brockhall, Marshall hopes to return to full training next week in a bid to return to the starting XI before the season is out.

The 23-year-old said: “I’ve been training on the grass for about three sessions now. I did a lot of work with the ball on Monday and a lot of running, so hopefully I can get a bit of fitness in this week, get back training next week and go from there.

“While it’s not been good being out, the recovery has been good. “The physio staff have helped me a lot – mentally as well – and I’m just glad to be out there and kicking the ball again.

“When I first got the injury the physios and doctors were telling me that it was probably going to be touch and go if I played again this season. But realistically my season was done. So it’s nice to be in with a shout of maybe playing some minutes on the field.”

Marshall’s injury could not have come at a worse time. After a stop-start beginning to his Rovers career, in which he struggled for fitness and confidence following his summer move from Leicester City, the former England U21 international was in fine form until his mistimed challenge on Derby’s Jeff Hendrick resulted in him being ruled out for the best part of three months.

“I was just about finding my feet and I felt like I was back to where I know I can be,” said Marshall, who fell down the pecking order at Leicester after initially establishing himself as a fans’ favourite at the King Power Stadium.

“It was going good for me mentally as well because at Leicester it was pretty hard.

“Hopefully I can pick up where I left off.

“It would be nice knowing I’ve been part of a couple of games before the end of the season for my own mind as I won’t have any problem for next season.”

Marshall’s former club Leicester’s 1-1 draw at Reading on Monday night means the gap between Rovers and the top six remains four points.

Another no-dad fantasy.

How far have you clowns fallen when your only hope for the future is that Burnley only spend one season in the Premier League while Blackburn Rovers face a third successive season of desperation and turmoil in the 2nd tier, but this time having to sell your best players to survive. Financial Fair Play couldn't have hit you at a worse time.

If we go up, as you seem convinced we will do, then we'll enjoy every second of it, sure there will be defeats but there will also be a few wins along the way and more importantly the massive financial boost that comes with playing at the top level, something you lot will never do again.

Unexpected bonus, if he is anywhere near fit he will give us much needed balance on the right, after a poor start he was flying for us when he picked up his injury.

To be honest though, unless results go for us this weekend which is unlikely, I wouldn't risk him for the rest of season, or Evans for that matter.

Work on holding on to our best players in the close season as well as getting everyone match fit so we can hit the ground running first game next season.

Ignore the troll, it's just trying to wreck sensible discussion again.

It has to come over here searching for crumbs of comfort, the poxy little club it pretends to support has so little interest by it's own fanbase on it's own threads the cobwebs start forming before before the reporter presses the enter key.

If you reply you give it a life of sorts.

How far we have fallen indeed my friend. Premier League title, League cup winners, trips across Europe, winning at Old Trafford, Anfield, White Hart Lane, St James Park, Highbury & The Emirates.

It's been hard for you to watch for twenty years. We had our time in the sun, lets see what you do now that you've got the chance. Unless you blow it (which is possible) MOTD will be pi$$ funny next season.

Premier League title...... you bought it.
League Cup....... you bought it.
Trips across Europe......... the most hilarious European episode ever witnessed in the history of the competition, beaten by a team of Swedish window-cleaners, sending's off and your own players throwing punches at each other like little girls.

And just look where you are now that all the money has gone and you're no longer allowed to buy you way out of trouble...

Next season? This season has been p!ss funny... not only watching you lot squirm as we've dominated you in every department but also beating you at Ewood Park, being ahead of you all season in the league, watching your team disintegrate with the onset of Financial Fair Play, and laughing at you once again as we sit in pole position for automatic promotion and a step up to the Premier League and a £120million windfall.

BUT....

Next season will EVEN BETTER for the Clarets, potentially playing in the against the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester CIty, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham.... while your embarrassment of a club is hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons, a humiliating transfer embargo as you are named and shamed as no-compliant with the FFP rules, further drastic cost cutting and the departure of your best players, Rhodes, Cairney, Hanley will all have to be sold (Rhodes might even be worth a spot on our bench next season), a third financially draining season in the 2nd tier of English football and most importantly one step further to the inevitable Venky departure which will send you tumbling down the divisions. Now that really will be p!ss funny.

SuperClaret - in case it passed you by you can't rob top level trophies from Aldi like you do your frozen chips, you have to invest and earn them.

We did, admittedly by using the money of a Blackburn lad and Blackburn fan, nothing wrong with that.

Your 'success' will be pocketing Sky money from failure.
Enjoy.

Super_Clarets - you'll find out what sinking really means next season
Another no-dad fantasy.

How far have you clowns fallen when your only hope for the future is that Burnley only spend one season in the Premier League while Blackburn Rovers face a third successive season of desperation and turmoil in the 2nd tier, but this time having to sell your best players to survive. Financial Fair Play couldn't have hit you at a worse time.

If we go up, as you seem convinced we will do, then we'll enjoy every second of it, sure there will be defeats but there will also be a few wins along the way and more importantly the massive financial boost that comes with playing at the top level, something you lot will never do again.
A few wins along the way? Now that's fantasy!

Enjoy it while it lasts - because it won't last long ;-)

How far we have fallen indeed my friend. Premier League title, League cup winners, trips across Europe, winning at Old Trafford, Anfield, White Hart Lane, St James Park, Highbury & The Emirates.

It's been hard for you to watch for twenty years. We had our time in the sun, lets see what you do now that you've got the chance. Unless you blow it (which is possible) MOTD will be pi$$ funny next season.
Premier League title...... you bought it.
League Cup....... you bought it.
Trips across Europe......... the most hilarious European episode ever witnessed in the history of the competition, beaten by a team of Swedish window-cleaners, sending's off and your own players throwing punches at each other like little girls.

And just look where you are now that all the money has gone and you're no longer allowed to buy you way out of trouble...

Next season? This season has been p!ss funny... not only watching you lot squirm as we've dominated you in every department but also beating you at Ewood Park, being ahead of you all season in the league, watching your team disintegrate with the onset of Financial Fair Play, and laughing at you once again as we sit in pole position for automatic promotion and a step up to the Premier League and a £120million windfall.

BUT....

Next season will EVEN BETTER for the Clarets, potentially playing in the against the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester CIty, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham.... while your embarrassment of a club is hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons, a humiliating transfer embargo as you are named and shamed as no-compliant with the FFP rules, further drastic cost cutting and the departure of your best players, Rhodes, Cairney, Hanley will all have to be sold (Rhodes might even be worth a spot on our bench next season), a third financially draining season in the 2nd tier of English football and most importantly one step further to the inevitable Venky departure which will send you tumbling down the divisions.
