Dutchman Ferrie Bodde will undergo a late fitness test ahead of the fixture against Port Vale after picking up an injury in the 1-0 win against Walsall on Tuesday.
Roberto Martinez must have been holding his breath as he saw the highly influential midfeilder Ferrie Bodde sprawled on the Liberty Stadium pitch.Bodde had clashed with Walsall's striker Troy Deeney after both players challenged for the ball just outside the centre circle. Initial prognosis did not look favourable for the former Den Hagg player. Despite the stretcher team being called onto the field of play to assist Swansea City physio Richie Evans , Bodde was able to walk to the touchline.
Not that the injury was to concern the midfeilder as he fired home the winner with a trademark thunderbolt strike on 53 minutes.
Playing through the injury could have proved a costly mistake by the Dutchman as he has sustained bruising of the knee which could see him miss out on the top v bottom clash at Vale Park this weekend.Richie Evans has also allayed fears that Bodde will be sidelined and indicated he will go through a late fitness test ahead of the game.
He Told the Evening Post:
|'Ferrie is very sore and his knee is heavily bruised.He had a gash caused by a stud which went right down to the bone and, when I first ran onto the pitch to treat him, I feared there might be some ligament damage. That's why we called the stretcher on. But thankfully the ligaments were okay and after we'd dressed the gash Ferrie was able to continue.'|
He's now being treated with plenty of ice and we'll just have to wait and see how the bruising settles down.'
'I'm hoping he'll be okay for Port Vale, but it could be that he does a fitness test on Saturday morning.'
|'It was painful and I had no feeling in my knee.'|
But I decided to wait a couple of minutes and the pain went away. Adrenaline got me through the rest of the game, and I'm glad I went back on because I got the goal that gave us the win. It shows it was a good choice.'
