Dack itching to get back to work

Brad says the international break has come at the perfect time for him

It's fair to say that it's been a frustrating last couple of weeks for Rovers star Bradley Dack.

The playmaker earned his first taste of Championship action last month and began the campaign in blistering form.

The Rovers number 23 scored on the opening day of the season at Ipswich Town, bagged a brace on the road at Carlisle United and then the winner in the 1-0 victory at Hull City.

But it was against the Tigers that Dack's fine start to the campaign came to an end, as he was forced off with an injury at the KCOM Stadium midway through the second half.

Fast forward a couple of weeks though and Dack's now fit and ready to get back amongst it, and is already counting down the days until Aston Villa visit Ewood Park on Saturday 15th September.

"It's certainly been a frustrating last few weeks for me," the 24-year-old said.

"With the injury, we didn't want to risk anything by rushing me back, and that was agreed with me, the medical staff and the gaffer.

"I could have come back quicker but in the end we made the decision that it would be better for me to miss a couple of weeks rather than 10 weeks by making the injury worse.

"I've been training for the last few days and will be training next week, ready for Villa at home - if selected of course.

"If I'm being honest, I could have risked the injury for the Bristol City game, but we felt it was too risky, so the international break has come at a good time really.

"I can get stronger with the extra couple of weeks without a game and hopefully I can go through the rest of the season injury-free."
