Striking trio making progress

Healey and Nombe begin running while Mason continues to train fully...

7 November 2019

Rhys Healey and Sam Nombe are both making progress in their respective recovery programmes while striker Joe Mason continues to inch closer to a return to action.

Healey (thigh) and Nombe (knee) have been sidelined since suffering injuries in September but have each started the next stage in their rehabilitation by running on treadmills at Stadium MK.

Meanwhile, Mason (hamstring) continues to train fully and edge towards making his long-awaited debut.

Manager Russell Martin is excited with the progress being made by his three forwards.

“Slowly, everyone is coming back,” Martin said in his press conference on Wednesday – his first since taking over as MK Dons boss.

“[Sam and Joe] have been running inside on the treadmills this week so that's really positive. I think Rhys will be back a bit sooner than Sam, and he'll be out on the grass in the next few days which will be a real boost for us.

“Joe Mason has been training every day. He's looked really good and sharp, and we'll be looking to get him on the pitch soon.”

He added: “The medical staff here is brilliant. When players come back, they come back better than before - look at Jordan Moore-Taylor.

“If we're in that position with Joe, Rhys and Sam all fit at some point, it'll be brilliant.”
