Double boost for Rovers

Last Updated: Mon, 02 Dec 2013 16:52

Bristol Rovers' injured duo Jim Paterson and Danny Woodards are edging closer to full fitness.

Scottish defender Paterson has been sidelined since breaking his leg in pre-season while former Exeter man Woodards suffered a serious knee injury in April.

But the pair are back in non-contact training and hope to be available for selection within a month.

"We're now getting them back into football work, which is great for their morale as well and their wellbeing," manager John Ward told the Bristol Evening Post.

"It is non-contact stuff for now, but in another 3-4 weeks those two will not be far away from being considered for some football games.

"They're both good trainers, really good professional boys and are pushing each other along."
