Beattie closing on full return

BY foxsports • October 10, 2011

Beattie, who was expected to be out for three months with an ankle injury, hopes his performance against Llanelli will lead to a speedy recall to Brendan Rodgers' first team. Beattie said: "It was a good exercise. A lot of the lads got a good 45 minutes under their belt before the international break to freshen up and some of the young lads came in to get some experience, so it was a good night. "I'm feeling really good. The specialist told me 10-12 weeks at the start and I've managed to get it down to four so it was good to get 45 minutes and a goal as well. "We hit them on the break and it was a nice cut back from Dobbs - I managed to get a sidefoot on it and put it in the corner. "We've not played together much since we have been here but I thought we linked up well."
