SWINDON TOWN: St George's treatment for Tijane
TIJANE Reis will spend two weeks at the national football centre at St George’s Park as he continues his recovery from a knee injury.
The Portuguese winger has not featured for Swindon Town since the 1-0 victory over Stevenage last month and has undergone a series of injections to try to clear up the problem which he has been managing since pre-season.
Reis is already ahead of schedule with his rehabilitation - the Advertiser understands the Swindon medical staff initially feared he could have been kept out until Christmas - and Town manager Mark Cooper feels St George’s Park is the best place for the wideman to step up his recuperation.
“He’s going to St George’s Park to do his rehab, which is the best place for him because of the facilities that are there. Hopefully he can go there for a week or 10 days and maybe not be too far away (from a return),” said Cooper.
“He’ll have one-to-one care on his injury and he’ll get more attention there than he would here because we have 20-odd players and Paul (Godfrey, physio) has got to look after all of them.
“I think the injections he had look as though they may have worked, so fingers crossed he gets the work he needs to done while he’s away and he won’t be far away from a return when he comes back.”
