my letters do not imply that i can work at all at the moment, my gp letter does say that he hopes eventually i might be well enough to work dependant on how my health progresses,but is not in his opinion now or in the near future

Hi hopeing that someone will be able to help with my query. I am awaiting an ESA tribunal, an oral one this time after making the mistake of having a paper one last year and being turned down. My support worker encouraged my to apply for DLA and last month with help from the CAB and her i filled in the application not expecting to get it. I was right just 3 days after recieving the form they had made a decision using the form and the report from my medical for ESA from march and turned my down, they didn't wait for the letter of support from my support worker which was sent just a cpl of days after the form! Anyway we asked for a reconsideration last week, got a really good support letter from my GP that i was going to send off yesterday, and they had the letter from my support worker to support my application. Imagine my shock then yesterday when i opened my mail to find a decission of low rate mobility and middle rate care.
My question now is will the fact that i have been awarded DLA help when I go to my tribunal for ESA?
Sorry for being a bit long winded.
