"The lads have done superb over the last week. Now we've got to keep that run going, keep churning out the results to put pressure on the other teams."
Deeney will be in an immobilising plastic boot for an initial two weeks, to allow the first part of the healing process to take place, then a second scan will take place to assess what the next steps should be for rehab.
"The specialist will probably want to stretch that fortnight longer, because he knows as soon as that boot's off I'll be charging through any work to get back!," he said, with a wry smile.
"I'm not going to be around until I'm out of that boot, but as soon as I can get to the games I'll be doing what I would expect a captain to do; being as big a support as I can be to the gaffer and the lads."
