Boss Mark Robins is looking forward to having Stephen back; "After all the hard work Stephen has put in, it was so pleasing to see him back, It was just reward for his efforts and great for him and his family because he's been through the mill in the last 12 months." he told the 'Tiser.
"He's shown a hell of a lot of character and this will give him that little bit more motivation and means he can see the light at the end of the tunnel."
"There's every chance he could be back with us before the end of the season and that's down to him. He just needs to get his match fitness up to speed. The physical wound has healed but, as with all players who suffer a bad injury, it's the mental side he's got to get over now." Robbo added.
