LEE Martin returned to full training as planned this week but manager Ian Holloway says the winger will not be rushed back into competitive action after an injury lay-off.
Martin has been sidelined since damaging knee ligaments at the start of September.
But he could be in the squad for tomorrow's home clash with Wolves – although Holloway's comments suggest the 27-year-old is unlikely to start.
"Lee has been joining in with the group," Holloway revealed.
"He was always on course to come back this week but we've got to be careful with him. It will be nice to have him back and he's looked good.
"The lads have had a bit of a break and now they're looking sharp in training. We've been doing extended and double sessions – working on our finishing and crossing – gearing up for the weekend."
