Rotherham United centre-forward Josh Kayode ends injury nightmare

ROTHERHAM United striker Josh Kayode has finally returned to action after spending seven months on the sidelines.

The 23-year-old came off the bench in the last two matches for League One Carlisle United, the club he joined on a season-long loan on the last day of the summer transfer window.

He replaced Millers old boy Georgie Kelly in a 1-0 midweek win at Cheltenham Town on April 9 and then made another substitute appearance last Saturday during a 1-0 home loss to Blackpool.

The centre-forward suffered shoulder damage just two matches into his spell with the Cumbrians, who will be playing in the fourth tier next term after being relegated, and was then hit by a calf injury just as he was nearing a comeback around Christmas.

Meanwhile, frontman Kelly is still getting up to speed with Carlisle whom he joined in January while carrying a calf complaint.

He wasn't ready to play until Easter and has followed up two sub outings with starts in the last three matches.

The 27-year-old has yet to get off the mark for his new club.
