James Husband is trying to stay positive despite enduring the frustratingly long process of recovering from a shoulder injury.

The young defender suffered a lengthy setback after his shoulder ‘popped out’ when he fell awkwardly during the defeat to Burnley earlier this month.

The 19-year-old had a scan on the problem which revealed a tear that will keep him on the sidelines for around 12 weeks as further rehabilitation takes place to repair the injury.

His omission from the squad has led to be bit of a selection headache for Rovers chief Paul Dickov with Reece Wabara filling the defensive void.

“I just fell awkwardly and I think it just popped out,” said the left-back.

“It is frustrating.

“I am trying not to look at negatives from it, although it is hard not to.

“You just look forward to getting back to playing as soon as possible to be honest.”

He went on: “It is a long process unfortunately [the rehabilitation].

“I can move it now, but it takes 12 weeks for the rehabilitation.”

Dickov has been forced to bring in South Korean international defender Yun Suk-Young on loan to provide cover for Husband who had made the left-back position his own before the injury.

Husband added: “I am just trying to recuperate now so I can move it a bit better.”
