DANNY CADAMARTERI could start his Town comeback in Wednesday’s reserve match against Stoke at the Galpharm (2.00).
The striker who has missed 14 matches with a knee injury was due back in full training at Storthes Hall today.
Cadamarteri, who has three goals in 14 first-team appearances, came through a week of individual work-outs with physio Lee Martin without a problem.
Now the 28-year-old is hoping to get the green light to play part of the Pontin’s Holidays League Central Division showdown.
Teenage striker Lucas Akins is also due to figure for the second team after the completion of his loan stint at Northwich Victoria.
“They asked about extending the loan further, but we feel it’s run its natural course,” explained manager Andy Ritchie.
“We’ll monitor him in our reserves and see if the experience he’s gained at Northwich has helped him progress.
“He’s been training with us in the early part of each week throughout his loan and he looks stronger already.”
While Akins was with the Town party at Chelsea on Saturday, centre-back Shane Killock made his loan debut for Hyde United in the 2-1 defeat at AFC Telford.
Huddersfield-based winger Nicky Clee also played for Hyde in the Blue Square North game.
Town boss Andy Ritchie said of Killock’s switch: “It will be good for him to get some games under his belt.
“Hyde’s assistant manager Neil Tolson is a man I know well from playing with him at Oldham.
“I had a good relationship with him when I was Oldham manager and he was in charge at Leigh, and a couple of my players got great benefit from spending time there.
“Hopefully the same will apply now.”
