Long term absentee, Mark Molesley, is getting close to a first team return following a lengthy absense with a persistent foot injury. Bradbury is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying on Molesley: "Mark was a bit upset the game was called off on Wednesday because he was going to play 90 minutes. That would have been his first 90 minutes since he had been injured. He has been training every day and has played a couple of reserve games, building up his time. He is not far off being involved in and around the first team again. It would be like having a new signing. He has got good quality about him and makes things happen".
On Lovell, who has yet to make an appearance for the first team since signing last Summer: "Steve is running pain free and is stepping up his training. He works with Louis Langdown (conditioning coach) most days. He is making good progress at the moment. I used to play with Steve at Portsmouth and he was my strike partner there for a while. He will definitely cause problems in this league".
Ben WIlliamson and Ryan Garry are said to be making good progress in their bids to return to first team action.
