"Peter's been working really hard to get fit again after such a bad injury," Toon boss Kevin Keegan told the club's official website. "I've been very impressed with the work he's put in at the training ground. He's really desperate to be a part of things. He's in line to join the squad in full training again soon. That's still a way away from being able to play, however.
"We'll see how he goes in training and then maybe look at getting him a run-out in a reserve game in due course."
