The 'injured players club' is a group that no footballer wants to be a part of but Fulham duo Jack Grimmer and Marcus Bettinelli have been helping each other mentally recover from their different woes.
Grimmer is hoping to return from an ankle injury in the coming weeks, while Bettinelli has set his sights on a return in February after suffering knee ligament damage in a collision with Matt Smith.
The striker has returned from his stint on the sidelines but the three of them worked together to keep spirits up and have gone out in London.
Bettinelli explained: “I've always been born and bred in London and you take that advantage. You don't see the sights you should have.
“Jack and Matty have been injured and we've been getting each other through. We've been going out for food and that.
“We've had a good little injury group. You don't want to be a member of it but when you are you look after each other.”
It goes without saying that, while at Fulham's Motspur Park training ground, the players are giving everything they've got to ensure the fastest possible recovery.

But there is no joy for a footballer to be lying on the treatment table, while your team-mates are out playing football.
So Bettinelli and Grimmer have been out and about in London during their free time in order to keep their spirits up.
Grimmer explained: “Betts and I went to the Natural History Museum. We went there and looked at the dinosaurs.
“We'd watched Jurassic World and it made us keen to see for ourselves. It's a good museum and having a day off gave us an opportunity. The Science Museum is next on the list."
Grimmer and Bettinelli were speaking on behalf of Sky Bet at the London Poppy Day in Leadenhall Market.
