Bevan upbeat over Robins return

Bristol Rovers goalkeeper Scott Bevan is confident he will play

again despite being ruled out since May with a wrist problem.

The 33-year-old will see a surgeon this week for a second

opinion on the injury having already undergone surgery during the

summer after playing through the pain last season.

Bevan told The Bristol Post: “I’m confident that I’ll be back

playing again. I was a bit scared about it, I’m not going to deny

that, but I have never entertained any thoughts that I might not

play again.

“I’m due to see a surgeon later on this week to get a second

opinion and to see if there is anything he can do. There is a

possible option of further surgery, but I am very hesitant to go

down that route.

“There has been a slight improvement of the problem over the

last two or three weeks. I’ve started to do a bit of handling work

and that has given me a little spring in my step.

“It’s difficult to put a timeframe on when I will play again.

I’m hoping that there will be another couple of weeks of handling

and then I may be able to join in with the lads in training

again.”
