BREWERS attacker Luke Varney was pleased to be back involved in the match-day squad against Brighton on Saturday after suffering a freak injury at the beginning of January on his Albion debut.

Varney suffered a freak injury after puncturing his lung and breaking a couple of his ribs after clashing with 6ft8 goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon on his Albion debut back in early January.


Varney said: “My injury is fine now, I still feel the odd twinge which I was always going to do with an injury of this nature. I had a couple of broken ribs, it was hard to take because I was delighted to complete the move here and had a first good couple of days and then to get injured on my debut it brought me down. It’s a strange one because you can understand a leg injury but to pick up a freak one was strange.”


Varney is now looking to cement his place in a competitive Albion squad and is looking forward to three games in six days, with two of them in Derby County and Blackburn Rovers being his former clubs: “The manager asked me yesterday how I was feeling, I need to get into a run of continuously training and playing so this run is perfect for me. I prefer it when the games come so quickly because if you have one bad result, the team know they can put it right in the next one.”
