Artell not totally ruling out a return for Hollands before the end of the season.
Danny Hollands is doing everything in his power to make an appearance for the club before the end of the season. The 31-year-old midfielder has not featured for the Alex since tearing a tendon in his hamstring in the 2-1 win over Wycombe Wanderers on Valentines’ Day.
Hollands’ desire to get back and professionalism has certainly impressed boss David Artell, who has described Hollands as an ‘unbelievable pro’ because of his work ethic and determination.
Hollands is out of contract in the summer and is doing everything in his power to get back for our final home game of the season against Barnet.
Artell told crewealex.net: “I must say Danny is coming on great. He is well ahead of schedule and that is all down to him. I don’t know what his hamstrings are made of but he has been out there running.
“He really is a top pro and he has really been pushing himself to get back. Dan loves the game and works incredibly hard, so much so that Rob has had to reign in a bit and say enough is enough.
“We don’t want him to have a relapse so close to the end of the season. We don’t want him to break down.
“I think he may just run out of time, but you never know. He might make himself available for the final game. I wouldn’t rule it out because of the character he is.
He added: “He understands where I am coming from. He has to prove his fitness before we talk about his future. He knows that and says he would be the same if he was in my chair. I’m sure we will talk going forward.”
