Plymouth Argyle have received a boost with the news that club captain Paul Wotton is poised to make a reserve-team comeback from a serious knee injury.
Wotton has been sidelined since last December, but is set to play in a second string outing on Monday evening after returning to full training.
Pilgrims boss Ian Holloway also hopes Serbian winger Bojan Djordjic, who has missed almost all of pre-season with an Achilles problem, will play in the Pontins League match against Bristol Rovers.
Speaking about Wotton, Holloway told the club's official website: "He is pulling against the bit so to speak.
"He could play (against Bristol Rovers reserves) if we feel that is right for him.
"I don't know if he has put somebody up in the air Wotton-style yet. I am sure that will happen, although it would be nicer if it was somebody else's player rather than one of ours.
"He (Djordjic) is due a game as well. He has done an awful lot of work and not had a reaction."
