Mikel Suarez could make his Tonbridge comeback against Farnborough – the team Angels were playing when he suffered his head injury last October.
But there’s also a chance he will be going out on loan ahead of Angels’ Blue Square Bet South game at home to Boro on Saturday.
Boss Tommy Warrilow revealed the striker would have played on Tuesday night but Angels’ Kent Senior Cup, quarter-final against Bromley was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
And with Warrilow due to release two players to ease pressure on club finances on Thursday, the door could be open for Suarez unless he’s sent out on loan.
Warrilow said: "Mikel’s chomping at the bit to play and would have had at least half an hour in the cup game.
"I’ve been the one saying to him ‘Are you sure you’re ready?’ He’s ticked off all the medical tests and trained well, so the next step is a game.
"It wouldn’t do any harm if I named him on the bench against Farnborough.
"There are clubs who will take him on loan but we also have a lot of reserve games coming up so he could stay and get his match fitness back with us."
Tonbridge's hopes of reaching the play-offs were boosted this week when Farnborough were deducted four points for fielding an ineligible player.
