Swansea Handed Anderson Injury Boost

Swansea Handed Anderson Injury Boost

Swansea City's injury woes look set to ease in the coming days with the news that Paul Anderson and Garry Monk will be fit to face AFC Bournemouth in 9 days time.

Anderson has not featured for the club since the 29th January. Under fire official Darren Deadman's decision to not push back the kick off time due to congestion around the City Ground let to the injury of the pacy winger.

The midfielder also unleashed stinging criticism on Deadman citing that 6 minutes was not enough time to go through a complete warm up.

The defensive injury crisis is set to ease with the return of Garry Monk pencilled in for next Saturday's clash with relegation threaded AFC Bournemouth and Marcos Painter expected to play a part in the title deciding showdown against Carlisle on Tuesday 9th April. Painter has been sidelined with a re-occurance of a hamstring problem that has so far refused to settle.

Martinez has been in upbeat mood ahead of the Hartlepool game that could see Swansea come within 3 wins of promotion to the Championship.

Martinez Told The SWEP

Garry and Marcos are progressing very well and that will boost our defensive options,' said Martinez.Paul went back to Liverpool for treatment and also to spend some time with his family which has really benefited him.'

'He gives us great strength and pace down the wings and he has also provided a lot of goals, so he is important to us.So with those players on their way back I think it is very important that I consider my squad before looking at any other player.'

'It would be very disrespectful if I brought another player in without looking at every option we have in the squad.For every position we have healthy competition and that has been vital for us this season.'

'The players are working hard on a daily basis to earn the right to wear the shirt and that has helped us progress this season.''


Swansea City reserves were held to a 1-1 draw against Exeter City last night.

Excellent news! Can't wait to see Ando ripping the defences again! Good to have Monk and Painter back soon, too. Shame about Orlandi though.
