Scotland Fit To Face Lions
Swansea City's injury list looked to have grown after Andy Robinson and Jason Scotland both needed treatment in the 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town yesterday afternoon.
Robinson had been the first injury casualty of the afternoon after the midfielder had picked up a thigh injury in the first half. Swansea Physio Richie Evans aluded that the winger was substituted as a precaution and did not pose any significant worries.
It would be Jason Scotland who was to give Roberto Martinez a selection headache for the rest of the season as he was stretchered off with a suspected broken toe. Faced with the prospect of the clubs top scorer out for the majority of the promotion push , Scotland had undergone a X ray scan on his foot at Swansea's Morriston Hospital.
Scans have revealed that the prognosis to the Striker is not as serious as initially thought. Full diagnosis has shown that Scotland as a dislocation in the toe area and should be cleared to play on Friday against Millwall.
Swansea received further good news as Captain Garry Monk looks set to slot back into the side following a back injury that ruled the vastly impressive defender out of the clash with Huddersfield Town.
Physio Richie Evans was upbeat about the trio and has given them clearance to play against Kenny Jackett's Millwall come Friday evening..
He Told Huddersfield's official site:
|"We've had some great news.We thought he'd broken a toe on his left foot, but the x-ray revealed no fracture. There was a dislocation there, but it won't cause him to miss Friday's game against Millwall at the Liberty Stadium.''|
We took him (Robinson) off at the right time and again he should be fit for Friday's game.We took him off at the right time and he should be fit for Friday's visit of Millwall to the Liberty Stadium.''
Swansea City will fly out to Spain today for a training camp and to play a friendly against Espanyol B .
