Striker to play a small part in today’s game against Rotherham.
Striker Liam Hearn is expected to feature at some point for our second-string in today’s Final Third Development League (East Division) game away to Rotherham United.
The 29-year-old frontman, who was formerly with Grimsby Town, has been sidelined since suffering a knee injury back in August.
Manager Adam Murray revealed the news at a press conference this morning.
“The good news is that Liam Hearn will play a small part in the game,” said our boss.
Murray continued: “He’s made tremendous progress. He’s back a couple of months quicker than expected which is brilliant for him and the football club.
“He went to St George’s Park last week for his final tests and assessments. Obviously the staff down there are top drawer and they were ‘over the moon’ with him. They couldn’t believe his progress or how strong he is.
“They’re happy for him to push on and now it’s about building his game-time up and getting him back into functional matchday movements.”
Today’s reserve game against the Millers gets underway at 2.00pm. A relatively young side is expected to make the trip to South Yorkshire.
