Tonbridge Angels have welcomed Mikel Suarez back to training less than three months after the striker was released from intensive care.
Suarez was taken to hospital on October 13 after clashing heads with team-mate Lee Browning during Tonbridge’s 4-1 defeat at Farnborough.
The 26-year-old regained consciousness a week later and released a statement in November thanking staff, players and fans for their support.
Now, Angels manager Tommy Warrilow (pictured) is optimistic the Spaniard could pull on the blue Angels shirt before the end of the season.
He said: "Mikel has started training. He’s been jogging round the pitch and he’s had his final check-ups at the hospital.
"I’m not going to push Mikel back in straight away but it’s nice to see him back among it. Hopefully we’ll see him back before the end of the season."
Suarez’s progress is more good news in a week which has seen the Angels win back-to-back home games for the first time this season.
Centre-back Olly Schulz should be fit despite injuring his neck against Maidenhead, while Danny Walder and Henry Muggeridge are back after suspension.
