HARRY Worley (above) is expected to make a long-awaited return to full training in the next 24 hours after missing pre-season with an ankle injury.

The Oxford United defender initially made good progress following surgery in May and was scheduled to join in with the rest of the first-team squad last week.

But the final stages of recovery have taken longer and the 23-year-old is hoping to have his first full session either today or tomorrow.

With Michael Duberry and Andy Whing on the sidelines, Worley’s return will provide some welcome back-up in central defence.

U’s boss Chris Wilder said: “I’d have liked for him to get a week or two of training into Harry, we’ve just got to be careful we don’t take a risk and re-injure him. That’s the last thing we can do.

“He’s progressed well, but possibly just not quite as quickly as we would have liked.

“Hopefully he’ll train (today) and Saturday.”

Glad he is on the road to recovery.However,
What happened re the possible signing of Evans? I think that he might have suited us better.
