Duo on mend

BARNSLEY defenders Luke Potter and Jay McEveley are both making good progress in their rehabilitation from respective knee operations.

Potter has not played since early November and was forced to have a second operation for medial ligament damage, while Scottish international McEveley has not played since mid-October and suffered a similar injury.

But Reds boss Mark Robins told The Star: "They're both making good progress. Luke's back training with us. We're just hoping his knee will settle down.

"It's been a difficult one because he's had a few reactions since his operation, but hopefully we can get him back soon. Jay's working hard and he'll be knocking on the door at some stage, but he's still got a bit of work to do. It was a bad ligament injury and we don't want to rushing him back and risk aggravating it again."
