Rotherham United hope striker Derek Holmes will be back in training next week.
Holmes has been sidelined for the past month after suffering a broken foot during the 1-1 draw at Brentford.
But Rotherham boss Mark Robins expects the forward to be pushing for a first-team comeback in the coming weeks.
Robins told The Star: "He is probably a week away from joining in.
"Then that will be another player back. Hopefully then that will give us a fully-fit squad."
Since moving to Millmoor from Carlisle United over the summer, Holmes has scored three goals in 10 appearances.
