Dalglish won’t predict Gerrard recovery


Liverpool manager has said Steven Gerrard is well on the road to recovery, but won’t jinx it by predicting a comeback.


The Anfield chief has refused to be drawn into putting a date on when the Reds captain is likely to take the field again.


Gerrard has been recovering from an ankle infection for the past two months and Dalglish is happy he has stepped up his rehabilitation.


“Steven is progressing and training really well. Everybody is delighted with his progress, so that is positive as well,” said the Liverpool boss.


“We'll wait and see (if he's available). We won't set any targets for Sunday that we won't reach.


“When he's ready he'll be ready. It's fantastic for him that he's progressing as well as he is and great for us as well.”


Since Gerrard was ruled out due to the injury, Liverpool have been struggling to find the net consistently.


They are currently sporting a goal difference of five and have only managed to find the net 18 times – less than bottom of the league Bolton.


It isn’t expected to be long until the England international returns, as he began light training last week and has since stepped up the intensity.
