Crewe striker Mathias Pogba looks set to return from his knee injury earlier than the initial December prediction.
Pogba, the elder brother of Juventus star Paul, has been out with the problem since being injured by Manchester United defender Scott Wootton just five days before the season start date.
The forward has now had surgery and is undergoing rehabilitation with Head Physio Rob Sharp.
Boss Steve Davies quoted: "Rob has got a great record of bringing players back early and he is way in to his rehabilitation now.
"It is too early to put a date on a return. It is normally two steps forward one back with an injury like that and it depends on the mentality of the player. Knowing Mathias he will be back earlier than expected."
