Greaves: "Weekend off was a welcome one"

Danny Greaves believes that the two-week break has been a blessing in disguise for The Robins.

Last weekend's trip to Dorchester Town was re-arranged and will now take place on Tuesday 12th February, due to The Magpies' FA Trophy commitments.

The break has given Greaves the chance to work on different areas of The Robins game in training, whilst allowing of the injured players in his squad time to rest and heal.

He said: "Our weekend off was a welcome one with the injury situation, but also gave us plenty of time on the training pitch. With the high amount of games in November and December, and a number of new signings over that period,

"It has been difficult to get the full group together to work on certain aspects of our game. This 2 week period has given us that opportunity.

The Robins have been training in Bristol and Bath over the last couple of weeks, allowing them to train in some frosty conditions.

Greaves said: "Last Saturday we trained for 2 hours over at Bristol Manor Farm on their 3G facility, and they also laid on lunch for the players, so we got to spend some good time together as a group.

"I must say a thank you to Lee Lashenko and BMF for allowing use their facilities. We have also had a few sessions over at Bath University, so we feel ready and prepared to attack the next few weeks and a number of important games."

The two weeks has also given The Robins the chance to assess their injury list, whether players will be fit to return to the squad or reinforcements are needed.

Goalkeeper Rob Brown made his move to Badgers Hill last week, as James Carey is set for an extended spell on the side lines

Greaves said: "James has returned to Bristol City as his injury looks set to keep him sidelined for up to 6 weeks. Rob will make his debut on Saturday.

"Of the remaining injured players, Kris Miller took part in training on Saturday following a 2 week absence with a groin injury. It's looking less positive for Jordan Rogers who picked up a knee injury in the Salisbury game, as it looks unlikely he will be back for this Saturday's game.

"Connor McCormack has started light training for the first time since he picked up a groin injury back in September, so hopefully we can welcome him back into the squad in the next 10 days.

There has been some good news for Greaves and The Robins as TJ Davis has impressed on his return from an extended injury layoff in recent weeks.

He added: "You will have noticed a familiar name back in the squad for our last 2 games in Rick 'TJ' Davis. He has recently recovered from his long term knee injury and made an impressive return from the bench against Salisbury. I'm delighted to have him back as he is an exciting player with real potential."
