Club's Wales Under-21 International on verge of return after coming through Under-23 test.
Defender Billy Sass-Davies came through the club’s Under-23 fixture at Colchester United unscathed last night and could return to first-team action before the end of the season.
The Wales Under-21 International has not featured in recent weeks due to a blood clot problem in his calf that he acquired back in February, but after being given the all-clear at a second scan, the centre-back has successfully returned to competitive action.
Manager David Artell said of the defender: “Billy has become an important figure for us and I cannot stress how important that loan spell at Yeovil was to him. It helped him immensely, moving away from the hotel of mum and dad in North Wales and maturing like he has.
“He still has a lot to learn but he is prepared to work hard and listen. He is a great professional and wants to get better and improve, so that is pleasing as well.
“He could still do low level fitness stuff so he never went down to zero if you like. He was always able to do something, but we had to wait for that second scan before we could full out again and now that has taken place, he is back out there.
“The main thing is he is back out on the pitch and we will see how he goes. He has still missed a couple of months, so we still have to be a bit cautious and careful with him because we don’t want to pull a muscle, but I am sure I will have that discussion with the physio and sports scientist when it comes round to him.”
