Allsop: Concentrating on recovering

AFC Bournemouth goalkeeper Ryan Allsop is remaining 'patient and positive' after a bout of glandular fever that stopped him from training for six weeks.

The Cherries 'keeper contracted the illness back in October.

It rounded off a difficult period for Allsop, who was sent off away at Leeds at the start of the month, saw Stephen Henderson come in on loan to replace him, only to regain the shirt after Henderson dislocated his shoulder at Nottingham Forest, to then lose his place to a second loanee following the signing of Lee Camp and then be hit by the illness.

Due to the nature of glandular fever, Allsop has spent the last month away from the squad and hasn't trained at all over the past few weeks.

Allsop told afcb.co.uk...

"It was a roller coaster. It was hard to deal with and I kept running through things in my head, thinking about what I could have done differently, But you have to put it behind you because I wanted to concentrate on recovering and getting back into it as soon as possible.

"I think setbacks make you a stronger person and you`re a better character as a result of them....'

'...I just have to be patient and positive. There`s no point in me getting down about it because there`s nothing I could have done to stop me getting glandular fever, but hopefully it won`t be too long until I`m fit and back into the thick of things again...'
