Heskey hoping for early return

Wigan Athletic striker Emile Heskey is hoping to be able to return to training in a week's time, after scans on his injured ankle suggested the problem was not as bad as first feared.

The 29-year-old was carried off on a stretcher during his side's 5-3 win over Blackburn at the JJB Stadium on Saturday and left the ground on crutches.

Manager Steve Bruce feared the England forward could be sidelined for a considerable period, but Heskey was upbeat today.

'The scan showed I hadn't broken anything - it's better than I thought. I hope in a week or so it will be okay,' he told Sky Sports.

'Fulham away (on December 22) is probably a bit too early; Aston Villa (at home on December 29) we will have to look at that and see where it goes from there.'

Heskey has already fought back from a foot injury earlier this season - which ruled him out of England's final three Euro 2008 qualifiers, after he had impressed following his recall to the national side in September.
