SCOTT HO­GAN is de­ter­mined to re­turn from his sea­son-end­ing knee in­jury bet­ter than ever, ac­cord­ing to Brent­ford physio Neil Greig.

The striker, who joined from Rochdale in the sum­mer, faces re­con­struc­tive surgery this week after dam­ag­ing the an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment in his left knee.

Greig said: “Timescales for Scott’s re­turn are loose at this stage but on av­er­age, the re­cov­ery from this type of in­jury is around nine months.

“Scott’s in­jury will re­quire some care­ful man­age­ment. We have a young and tal­ented player who has al­ready demon­strated a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude and de­ter­mi­na­tion to re­turn bet­ter than ever.”
