Anderson back at Burnley after horror clash
Rotherham United beat Doncaster Rovers last Saturday, coming back from a goal behind to win the game 2-1 with the goals recorded at 90+2 and 90+13 minutes.
A goal 13 minutes into stoppage time made me investigate further. It had to be an injury and so it was, to Burnley’s Tom Anderson who is currently on loan at Doncaster and was playing his fifth game for them when, soon after half time, he suffered a fractured cheekbone that will keep him out for up to six weeks.
Speaking to the Doncaster Free Press today, Doncaster manager Darren Ferguson said: “It was a bad one. Marko’s (goalkeeper Marko Marosi) caught him badly. The striker’s just nudged him and obviously put him onto Marko.
“We thought he had fractured his eye socket as well but he hasn’t. It’s a bad injury but it could’ve been worse in many ways. He’s a tough boy, he’ll get on with it.”
Tom has now returned to Burnley prior to having surgery and Ferguson added: “Burnley will get him in quicker for the operation and we’ll keep in contact with him about how his rehab is going.”
Anderson spent the first half of the season on loan with Port Vale before moving to Doncaster for whom he scored twice a week earlier in their 3-0 win against Fleetwood.Share this page :
