Injured Barnsley striker Iain Hume is looking for a chauffeur to help his drive back to full fitness.

It was feared Hume would miss the season after suffering a fractured skull in the Coca-Cola Championship match against rivals Sheffield United.

But brain specialists have told him he could return to training within two months - if he can find someone to drive him there and back!

Hume is now on the look out for a personal chauffeur after being told he will not be able to get behind the wheel for up to six months.

The Canada international is desperate to rejoin his team-mates as soon as possible and play some part in the remainder of the season as the Tykes battle to avoid relegation.

Ex-Leicester man Hume is being driven around by friends and family members at the moment.

But there is every chance the club will fix him up with a full-time chauffeur.

Tykes Manager Simon Davey said: "Iain was back at the ground for the 1-0 defeat against Reading after managing to get himself out of the house and over here to Oakwell.

"His father-in-law brought him, and it was great to see him again.

"Iain is not going to be able to drive for six months and, in the meantime, there are a lot of stages and hurdles for him to get over.

"But the club will endeavour to do all it can to help him get back to full fitness."
