"After the accident a lot of people said I wouldn't make it back and yet the doctors gave me a 75 per cent chance," Coleman said today.

"So far I'm ahead of schedule.

"This was a bad injury, as bad as it gets," said the 31-year-old Welsh international defender who damaged knee ligaments and broke his right leg and ankle when he crashed his sports car into a tree.
"My tibia has knitted perfectly and now I'm running and doing the odd twist and turn," said Coleman.

"The next step is whether my knee is OK. I damaged a cruciate in the accident, but so far it hasn't given me any extra problems.

"If I'm told I don't need an operation then it is possible, just possible, that I could be back before the end of the season. If not, it will be the start of next season," said Coleman.
