TOP Wisbech centre-back Paul Cousins is making a speedy recovery from a foot injury and may be back on the pitch within a fortnight.
The uncompromising defender broke his foot in the Fenmen's 1-0 home league defeat to Dereham Town on December 29.
Wisbech manager Roy McManus had previously hoped Cousins would recover in time for Easter, but the player had a plaster cast taken off last week and is recovering quicker than expected.
McManus said: "Paul is a very important player for us so to have him back early would be a massive boost.

"The prognosis is extremely positive and I'm optimistic that he could be available in two to three weeks."
