The midfield warhorse has been struggling on with an ankle knock and bleeding his his thigh, but a blank weekend followed by a one-game suspension this weekend has freshened him up.
“He trained brilliantly yesterday,” said manager David Flitcroft.
“He was carrying a bit of an ankle knock from Cambridge. But Bish being Bish, and the honesty he possesses, didn't want to miss training.
“The bleed he suffered in his thigh was quite a big one. But he has been able to come down off that and it's like he has had a mental recharge.”
He added: “He is one of those players that sometimes need a rest, but he won't. He loves training, being professional, and playing football for a living. We've had a real honest chat and sometimes I might actually have to take him out myself and ignore what he is telling me!
“He will be absolutely raring to go next Tuesday.”
