CITY stopper Paul Bastock hopes to be back in action as soon as next week after doctors told him his eye injury was healing well.
Last Sunday, the Non League Paper reported that Bastock's 20-year career could be over but last season's Player of the Year told The Herts Advertiser that's far from the case.
"I had a good day yesterday. I went back to the clinic and they said another week's rest and it should be back to normal.
"I've got to go back tomorrow because I've still got a bit of double vision when my head is at an angle but that is just to clear a few things up."

Bastock picked up the injury after an accidental elbow from TeamBath captain Gary Warren but played the rest of the game despite suffering from blurred vision.
"When it happened I felt the eye go back and I heard a crack. I asked the physio if I'd broken my cheekbone but he said my face was fine," recalls Bastock.

"The next day I've gone to blow my nose and my eye's swollen. I was going to go to work the next day but I've gone to blow my nose again and my vision went blurry.
"I rang Steve [Castle] and said I was going to hospital because something is not right.
The hospital said I'd fractured my cheekbone and they've given me all the possible scenarios. They always give you the worst possible scenario - the Non League Paper have blown it up a bit."
"The boys are doing well. I'm going along on Saturday to watch and hopefully next week I'll be back.
