Doncaster Rovers defender Rob Jones Is set to see a specialist on Monday as he starts tentative steps back to fitness.
Jones saw a specialist at the start of the week who says the injury that has seen him sidelined for the past two months is slowly improving.
The defender is suffering from bulging disks at the base of his neck and the club do not want to rush Jones back, avoiding long-term damage.
Speaking on the official website , Rovers boss Paul Dickov said, “The scan indicated that there was not a big improvement since last time with the bulging of the disks but the good news is that it is not pressing on the nerves anymore.
We can`t take chances with this type of injury which is serious, so we need to take on board all advice and look after him”
“We have to make sure we do right by Rob as it`s his career and life.
“We won`t risk Rob until we have 100% all clear from the specialist”
“This is a small step forward and we are hopeful we can get Rob back soon but we have to be aware it could be longer term, which means at this time we can`t put a timescale on him coming back.”
Dickov has moved to strengthen his defence today with experienced defender Abdoulaye Meite signing until the end of the season after spending the past two months at the Keepmoat on trial.
