This morning Barnetfc.com caught up with Stuart Ayles, Head of Sports Science at Barnet FC. This is what he had to say:
Steve Kabba and Danny Senda have been working very closely with me in rehab for the 10 weeks I have been at Barnet FC and what has impressed me most with these two players is their incredible work ethic and immense desire to get back to training and playing.
Both players have continuously worked incredibly hard pushing themselves to the limit every day either in the gym, on the training ground or both.
Steve is doing very well on the long road to recovery after an operation last December to resolve a very serious injury he sustained two seasons ago. If things continue to go well in rehab we would hope to see Steve back in training in the next 6 – 8 weeks.
Danny Senda is also recovering from an operation in January to repair a ruptured patella tendon. He has trained with the rest of the squad intermittently over the last three weeks as part of what we call his ‘end stage rehab’ and continues to go from strength to strength, ably coping with the stresses of daily training without any adverse reaction to his knee.
I would like to thank both of them for coming into work every day with the same enthusiasm, determination, desire and smiles, even though they know it’s going to be hard work. It’s a pleasure to work with these guys.
A quick word on the 4 injuries we picked up in last Saturdays game against Gillingham.
Both Andy Yiadom and Mark Byrne sustained ankle injuries and are receiving intense treatment to enable them to return as soon as possible.
Jake Hyde is working hard to shrug off a severe ‘dead-leg’ and nasty kick to the ankle to be ready for this Saturdays game at Bradford.
Jack Saville came off last week with bad ‘bone bruising, to his foot but has responded well to treatment this week and is expected to be fit for the trip to Bradford.
Barnetfc.com would like to thank Stuart for taking time from his busy schedule to put together this update.
