Redruth winger Matt Bowden is still a month away from returning to the side after injury.

The 23-year-old has been out with a torn abductor muscle he sustained in a pre-season game against Bath United.

"Hopefully he will be back doing light training in the next three to four weeks," Redruth's director of rugby Dave Penberthy told the club website.external-link

Meanwhile, Aaron Penberthy is set to be out for six to eight weeks with a broken rib suffered against Worthing.
