The 27-year-old was expected to be out until around January after having knee surgery following an injury against Rochdale in April. But he took part in a session at the club's Essington training ground this afternoon.

If fit, Wilkinson could link up with on-loan 12-goal forward Danny Johnson - the pair formerly played together at Leyton Orient.
