I started light training on Monday, working on the cross trainer and working with weights, and it feels okay.[LNB]"The gaffer (John Coleman) has been really supportive, he has told me to keep my head up, concentrate on getting back to full fitness and to continue where I left off back in October. I had just scored my first ever professional goal and I was really enjoying my game so it was such a big blow when I got the injury."[LNB]He added: "I am hoping to be in the squad for our game against Morecambe on Boxing Day - it would be a great belated Christmas present if I was."[LNB][LNB]
