TRANMERE hope visits to three specialists have set James Wallace on a clear path to a comeback after 10 months on the sidelines – even if he will be obliged to keep his feet up in the next 10 days.
The midfielder was given an injection in the knee which has been plagued by ligament damage sustained last December and more recently by a swelling caused by fluid.
Manager Ronnie Moore said: “James saw three specialists all in different fields, including the surgeon who did the reconstruction operation. They are saying that the operation went well but since then anything that could go wrong has gone wrong.
“We are hopeful that after 10 days’ rest, James will be able to start working and running, fingers crossed.
“James did the injury on December 1 last year so we are not far off 12 months. The lad is pulling his hair out and wants to play.”
