Colchester United striker Luke Norris could be set for a return this side of the new year, as he makes good progress from his recent ankle injury.
The front man was taken off on a stretcher on the U's last home game, but is now doing work with club physio Tony Flynn to get himself back in contention for a first team return.
Speaking to the media ahead of this weekend's game, U's Head Coach said: "Luke will only be out for a matter of a few weeks, rather than months. We have got the information back from his latest scan, and he will be working one-on-one with physio Tony Flynn.
“It’s not what we first feared and it looks like we are looking at the middle to the end of December for his return.”
