Ricketts rehab runs on

The 29-year-old's season was cut short by the injury in February and he is still a month away for being able to walk unaided.

However, he knows despite any frustrations he cannot afford to rush his return.

"The injury is progressing slowly but it's one of those which I can't really do too much with at the moment as I have to let nature take its course," he said.

"I'm still on crutches and I will be for another month or so to make sure it heals good and proper.

"It's a six-month injury and it can't be hurried in any way, shape or form. I have just got to be patient and take my time."
