Bradley Dack was back at Brockhall Village this week, with staff ready to assess his hamstring injury, which he picked up towards the end of the 2017-18 season.
The playmaker was voted League One's Player of the Year and Rovers' Player of the Year for his displays in a season which saw him score 18 goals in his first season at Ewood Park.
But there was disappointment for the 24-year-old, who missed the last two games of the campaign due to a troublesome strain which ruled him out of the trip to Charlton and the home clash against Oxford United in front of over 28,000 at Ewood.
So, how's his summer gone?
“It’s been nice to get a break after a long and hard season," the no. 23 explained. "To win promotion meant it was a nice summer.
"I fitted my holidays in and now the focus over the next few weeks is about getting my fitness up ahead of next season.
“My hamstring is all sorted now, I’m feeling good and now it’s all about getting that base fitness sorted and get myself back into full time training.
“It was disappointing to miss the last couple of games, but we did get the job done, which was the main objective. After it [hamstring] went I made sure I looked after the injury and now it’s about strengthening it and working on the stuff around it."
