bit, but he will get through it. The accident in Swindon


last December is still Jamie is being treated


at a hospital in Oxford. Where he's undergoing four


hours of physio a day. It is amazing. He has talked to me


about the Paralympics and things. We had a few interesting chats about


breaking Oscar Pistorius's records. What matters most right now to Jamie


are those closest to him. When I bring in the twins he is so


happy. Considering it was only a few weeks ago he was in a coma, it is


happy and smiling. He can do most happy and smiling. He can do most


wings now without prosthetics. When he has then, he's going to be


normal, he will be fine. More than ?100,000 has

Tariq Gaffney were enough to earn Bristol Rovers victory over


Chesterfield. They're just three points off the League 1 play-off


places. Swindon conceded twice in the last six minutes to Luther


Bradford. They look to have won the game with this, before the home side


fought back, leading them third from bottom. Cheltenham, who were without


manager Gary Johnson as he recovers from heart surgery, almost scored in


the opening minute against Cambridge. The visitors intervened


and took and held the lead with their first attack. Yeovil equalised


in the 74th minute to get a point against ten man Acklington. Forest

into some problems - and Peter's sons remember

said to me, whatever you do, do not start up business back up again. 15


years later, me and Paul started the business back-up. Nobody wanted to


tell him. We were so pleased that he was thrilled to bits. He had a bee


in his bonnet. He could disown you. Hear more of their story -


and see how Seb got on with a bit of kite flying -
