Manager Neil Harris has confirmed that defender and skipper Tony Craig has now been given the all clear to step up his training.

With the 30 year old suffering severe knee and hamstring damage to his ligaments and muscles when making a block back in the scoreless draw with Bradford at The Den in November, he is now back travelling with the team as his rehabilitation continues, and having seen a consultant last week, he was told that scans show the damage is healing at the expected rate so he can now push himself a little bit further in his quest for fitness.

Harris revealed, when talking to the South London Press, that the player could in fact be back in training after the end of next month which would obviously be a boost for everybody at the club.

‘Tony saw the specalist last week and was given the green light to continue his rehab. It was a really good follow-up appointment. There are lots of pitfalls with the type of injury he has. It might not have repaired in the way we hoped or the healing might have been slower than we had hoped. But it seems to be coming on really well. Now he will step up his gym work indoors so he can then progress to running later on.’

Harris went on to add that obviously he still has a ‘long way to go’ and he won’t be with the group outside for at least a month, if not a touch longer, but he’s on his way back.

‘But hopefully we will see him back in full training before the end of the season. The way he is, with his determination and desire, he could still play a part this season.’
