Carlisle United defender Frank Simek is confident of being fit for the start of pre-season training late this summer.
The right-back's arm is still in a sling after he dislocated his elbow during the final match of the season against Yeovil.
"It's feeling a lot better and I'm pleased with where it's at considering it was only two weeks ago when I injured it," Simek told the club's official website.
"The majority of the pain has gone and I am now just working on getting all my range of motion back.
"It's quite stiff at the moment but I'm hoping it will return to normal fairly soon.
"I had it X-rayed a couple of days ago and the doctor says it will just be a matter of time before it's back to 100 per cent. I'm confident it will be good to go when we start pre-season training in July."
