|Harrold at Torquay in April - Lifted from: bristolpost.com|
It's been frustrating for both Harrold and for manager John Ward but it seems that he is now very close to returning. Ward explained that Harrold would be taking part in a training ground match this afternoon against AFC Bournemouth and hopes to have him come through the test unscathed. Should this happen he will be among the squad who tackle the Cobblers this weekend, just in time to play his way into Ward's thinking for the upcoming Bristol derby next Wednesday.
Defender Garry Kenneth and midfielder Matt Gill are in similar positions after recovering from injury but are further along the line having played in previous training ground matches. Gill also came on as a late substitute against York City last weekend for his first taste of competitive football since well before last Christmas. The reintroduction of all 3 players into the first team squad will be a massive boost to everyone as focus switches to maintaining a winning run.
