CHERRIES star David Brooks would not have any problems playing Premier League games behind closed doors and said: “Everyone will be in the same boat.”

The Wales international, who has missed the entire campaign so far due to an ankle injury, was denied his comeback when English football shut down due to COVID-19 last month.

The Premier League are set to meet on Friday to discus the next steps regarding plans for the season going forward.

Asked about the prospect of playing games with no supporters in attendance, Brooks told talkSPORT: “If the Premier League and club are happy to do that, I personally don’t have any problems with it.

“No player would tell you it’s ever going to be the same without the fans and at times the fans can be that extra boost to get you the three points or point you might need.

“I think it would be more difficult and it’s not going to be good for any team to play without any fans but I think everyone will be in the same boat – so you can’t really complain.”

Brooks’s last top-flight appearance came in a 3-3 draw at Southampton in April 2019. He has undergone two operations on the ankle problem, sustained at Brentford in pre-season.
