Drenthe nearing first team return

Drenthe nearing first team return

Nigel Adkins has revealed that Royston Drenthe is close to a return to action, after recovering from injury.

The one-time Dutch international has been out for nearly two months with injury, but after finally recovering from his problem, is back in full training. Despite this, Adkins maintained he still needs to build match fitness up enough to earn his spot back.

Quoted by Sky Sports, the Royals manager said: 'The lads who didn't play Saturday were on the pitch having a hard session after the game. Royston Drenthe was out there, so too Danny Williams.'

'First they need to be training so it's pleasing they're out there, and then build up a level of fitness. He has got to get fit, if you want to play football you've got to be fit. He hasn't been on the pitch or trained for eight weeks.'


It's fair to say that we have missed Royston's quality on the ball since he was injured, despite not having a massive impact so far when he did play. The same applies for Danny Williams, who has also made a promising start to his Reading career.
