Hackworth Closing In On Full Fitness

Hackworth has made just 3 starts this season and has been injury plagued since his move to Meadow Lane in July 2001 and he has only found the net once in the league, at Bournemouth in October 2001.

Following his latest setback he is well on the way to full fitness and after a sub appearance at Oldham on Saturday and a full appearance for the reserves yesterday, backed up with a goal, he is hopeful of gaining a recall sooner rather than later.

"I've been working hard on my fitness in the last few weeks because being injured had meant my fitness levels have dropped, but I'm getting near 100%," Hackworth told the club's official website.

"I haven't played that many games this season, which has been disappointing, but I was pleased with my performance and pleased to get a goal."
