Gregan set for return soon
Captain Sean Gregan is set to return to training sometime next week. Gregan has been sidelined for a month with an achilles problem but has made good progress. His injury occurred in Athletic's Johnstone's Paint Trophy game at Doncaster and he was left on crutches. It is expected that he may possibly make his comeback game against Doncaster, how ironic.
However, there is no guarantee that Gregans return will gain him a starting spot in the team as Neal Trotman and Stefan Stam have recently become mainstays in Athletic's back line. It certainly poses a problem for manager Johns Sheridan as neither can be left out on their current form.
