Former Reds favourite Liam battling to beat serious injury
LIAM Hearn is making good progress on the road to recovery from long-term injury, according to Grimsby Town physio Dave Moore.
The former Alfreton Town star was ruled out for most of the season after rupturing his Achilles tendon in August.
But the 27-year-old hit man could be back in action in March, if all goes according to plan.
"Liam has done fantastically well and he's ahead of every target we set him," said Moore.

"He had six weeks in plaster cast initially and, since then, we've been able to make a lot of progress.
"He's been a pleasure to work with because he's so dedicated and keeps himself so fit.
"He really wants to do the work and it's not like you have to push him to do anything.
"He's made some real progress and he's now at the stage where he's doing a lot of strengthening work on the calves and a lot of cycling and running on the spot on a trampoline in the gym.
"It's going really positively for him and he's determined to come back stronger."
Hearn netted 77 goals in less than three seasons with Alfreton before joining Grimsby during the summer of 2011.
The Nottingham-born striker scored 29 goals in his first season with Grimsby last term and was named the Mariners' player of the year.
