Hewitt pleased with progress of injured players.

 Hewitt pleased with progress of injured players.

Tommy Lee injured himself in training after going over on his ankle, so he was forced to miss the last game of the season against Exeter City. Talking to the club website about Tommy lee, Hewitt said: 'I spoke to him at the start of this week, I don't think it was progressing as quickly as. He'd like or I'd like really.'

Although Lee has made progress since the start of the week and Hewitt goes on to say: 'We've had a consultation today with a specialist over his ankle and the news was quite good. Tommy Lee should be fit for pre-season time.'

Nathan Smith who received a fracture to his ankle during a 1-0 victory over Oxford United which meant he missed the remainder of the season. Rehabilitation is going well and he should also be fit for Pre-season. Hewitt said: 'Just after the end of the season, April 30th, he had the pot removed which had been on for six weeks due to the fracture. He's moving now, walking okay without the aid of crutches. Using the pool, doing quite a lot of pool work.'

I don't know how he is coping without his head phones because he won't be able to have them on in the water, because they seem permanently fixed to his ears. It's great that things are going well because he will have a vital role to play in the Spireites promotion chase next season.

Brindley went off injured after about half an hour of the game gone at Fleetwood. He has had an hernia operation and is on his way back to making a full recovery. Hewitt said: ' Hopefully he will be discharged on Thursday (May 16) everything's looking good at the minute so he'll be free to do his own thing for a few weeks before pre-season.

One of the most important thing he needs to do before pre-season his sign a new contract.

So hopefully all three players will be available for the pre-season friendlies with the first match kicking-off on the 6th of July at Buxton.
