Nicky set for reserve outing

5 September 2012

Defender Nicky Hunt talks to

Nicky Hunt looks set to continue his rehabilitation from a hamstring problem with some game time for the reserves at Gateshead tonight.

Manager Steve Evans revealed last night that both Hunt and Dale Tonge would play a part this evening, and the former Bolton defender is feeling confident of a return to first team action shortly.

“I had a scan last week and the results were positive, much better than expected,” Hunt told

“I did some work with the physio last weekend and then stepped it up this week. It was a 50% tear to my hamstring but it feels back to normal now so I am looking forward to getting back involved.”

Hunt’s return will be music to Evans’ ears as the curse of the right-backs came back to haunt him last night, when Mark Bradley limped out of the JP Trophy defeat to York with a similar problem.

Hunt started full training this week and is looking forward to finally making his first league appearance at New York Stadium, after playing in the first three pre-season friendlies.

“I played the first couple of friendlies which was fantastic but obviously the league games are a different story, that’s the bread and butter and those are the games I cannot wait to be involved in,” he added.

The Reserves take on Gateshaed at the International Stadium tonight, kick off 7pm.
