Sinclair, Dobbie & Pratley Return Boosts Swans

Brendan Rodgers looks set to receive a triple boost ahead of Saturday's game as Scott Sinclair, Darren Pratley and Stephen Dobbie are all expected to return for the trip to Reading.

Scott Sinclair missed Swansea City's last game at home to Derby County with a hamstring injury but he has now had 2 weeks during the international break to recover.

The 500,000 signing from Chelsea has been our best performer of the season so far, scoring 8 goals in 9 games and has been influential in our promising start to the Championship season. The quality he adds to the team and the difference when he's missing has been evident when he's been out on the sidelines. We struggled at home to Derby County, drawing 0-0, and before that we lost 3-1 at Nottingham Forest.

Stephen Dobbie and Darren Pratley, both key first team players, should also be back in the first team at the Madesjki Stadium on Saturday. Dobbie is a hard-worker up front, dangerous in and around the box and he has netted 4 goals so far this term, whilst Pratley is energetic as always in midfield and helps to give us more strength in the middle third.

Joe Allen is a doubt however and the Swans are monitoring his fitness after he was forced to withdraw himself from the Wales squad because of a groin problem.

Brendan Rodgers is also boosted with the signing of Kemy Agustien. He hasn't played a game since the end of July due to a knee ligament injury so it might be a couple of weeks before we see him in action.
