Anthony set for training return

Byron Anthony: Closing in on a return

Newport defender Byron Anthony will step up his rehabilitation from a broken leg when he rejoins full training next week.

The former Bristol Rovers man has spent nearly six months on the sidelines after breaking his tibia and fibula in August.

County physio Adam Roche told the club's official website: "Many months of hard work, rehabilitation and being a consummate professional will see Byron returning nearly three months earlier than anticipated.

"From what I have seen during his end stage rehab, Byron is moving extremely well and I have no doubt he will kick on from here."
