MIRACLE man Antony Sweeney could be back in training as early as next week after again allaying fears he is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines, writes CRAIG HOPE.

The player of the season limped out of Saturday’s defeat against Wycombe Wanderers clutching his groin, sparking concerns that he’d suffered a recurrence of an injury he picked up back in August.

On that occasion Sweeney missed four matches and it was feared he could be set for a similar, or longer, lay-off this time around.

But manager Mick Wadsworth has revealed that the 28-year-old, while still being assessed by the club’s medical staff, is on the mend already and, given his Lazarus-like healing powers, could be back in training far sooner than first expected.

“Tony’s still being assessed but it’s not as bad as the last time,” the first-team coach told SportMail.

“It’s still got to settle down and we haven’t put a time on it.

“But with Tony, because he’s such an incredible healer, I wouldn’t be surprised if he started training on Monday or even this Friday.

“You just never know with Tony because he’s incredible in that respect.”
