Jacob Blyth is making good progress in his recovery from the shoulder injury which wrecked his pre-season only minutes after it started, report The (North West Evening) Mail.

The AFC striker suffered a dislocated shoulder, a blow to the head and damage to his wrist in Barrow’s opening friendly against Furness Select.

He lay prone on the terracing for more than half-an-hour before being taken to Furness General Hospital, and has not been seen in action since.

However, the former Motherwell and Northampton Town man has returned to light training – along with goalkeeper Joel Dixon, following knee surgery – and is set to be taking part in sessions with his teammates within a fortnight.

“Jacob Blyth is back on the grass again, Joel Dixon is back on the grass again, so they are doing really well,” said manager Ian Evatt. “We’re not far off now being back to full-strength.”
