Truro City striker Stewart Yetton closes in on injury return

Truro City striker Stewart Yetton is closing in on a return to the side after a knee injury.

The 27-year-old former Plymouth Argyle striker has not played since the start of December and has struggled to recover from the problem.

But manager Lee Hodges says Yetton is pushing for a place in his squad.

"He's close, but he needs to get that confidence back in himself and his knee as he's been out for quite a while now," he told BBC Radio Cornwall.

"We don't want to put a timescale on it, but he's very close. Last Thursday we were umming ands ahhing as to whether to stick him on the bench."

Yetton has scored more than 200 goals for the club since joining in 2005 and has been part of the Truro team which progressed from playing local football to the Conference South.

He was also in the side which won the 2007 FA Vase.
