Injured Yeovil Town striker Alex Fisher is hoping to be available for selection at the start of November as he continues his recovery from a horrific leg break.

The 33-year-old has not featured which suffering a broken tibia and fibula and severely damaged his ankle after an accidental collision with Southend United goalkeeper Colin Andeng-Ndi in the Glovers’ 2-0 defeat at Huish Park in April.

He is providing co-commentary on BBC Somerset for today’s National League South home match with Aveley and was asked about his recovery ahead of the fixture.

The frontman said: “It’s been going really well. I don’t want to speak too soon, but it looks like I am going to be making a return a good two months ahead of when was originally planned in January. 

So it could be the beginning of November that I could be back with the guys and there’s lots to look forward too.

He revealed he has a scan of his injury during the start of November and is hopeful this will give him the green light to make himself available for selection again.

He said: “This week has been nice, back on the grass, kicking balls again, it is amazing how much the body aches when it has not been used.

It’s nice to get back down and see the guys and hopefully I will be training competitively soon. Hopefully, the worst is behind me and I can get back again.
