John Egan and Enda Stevens have both praised the communication within the club, especially with the players being 'kept in the loop' with regards to a likely resumption of Premier League action.

The Irish duo have also revealed the players have maintained their regular routines and trained hard throughout the lockdown, following the safety protocols in place, despite the suspension of top-flight football which originally began on the 13th March.

Egan commented: "It's important, we're being kept in the loop through the Club, via the skipper (Billy Sharp) and a lot of conference calls.

"We're being kept in the loop well and we're just following our training programmes. I'm sure when the decisions are made, we will have a plan to make sure we're as ready as possible.

"We're used to pre-season and getting ready for games. We've had some time off, but it's not really been time off. I think George (Baldock) is right, some of the sessions have been really tough, everyone has done them and we're making sure everyone is in the best possible shape to return and hit the ground running."

Stevens added: "We have communications and the protocols in place to prepare. We've just got to bide our time now, listen to the people in charge, the ones guiding us and respect the decisions they make.

"I've my little girl to keep me busy. I've kept that routine of waking up and doing my gym sessions and training sessions within the hours that we would have been used to.

"I've then been going out and having that bit of exercise, take the dog for a walk with my missus and the baby, it clears your head a bit.

"The weeks tend to pass you by really quickly, it's more the weekends that tend to slow you down. We've had some great weather in Sheffield, so that's helped."
