Lawrence Hoping To Return Saturday

Lawrence Hoping To Return Saturday

Defender Dennis Lawrence is hoping to make a surprise return this Saturday when Swansea City entertain Bradford at the Liberty Stadium.

The 32 year-old is stepping up his rehabilition this week in the hope that he can return to full fitness for Saturday's game.

He suffered a groin injury early on in the Carling Cup defeat at home to Wycombe 2 weeks ago and it was originally thought that he would be out for a month or more.

However, it's unlikely that he'll be able to return to the starting line-up but there's certainly an outside chance he can make the substitute's bench.

Kenny Jackett said: ''He has had a good couple of days training with my physio,''

''and Richie (Evans) has told me that Denis should be back with the boys by Thursday and that there is a outside chance for being fit for Saturday.''


The only other players Jackett is without are Owain Tudur-Jones and captain Garry Monk, who's likely to miss the rest of the season.

Tudur-Jones' progress meanwhile is slowing and he's now looking at returning sometime in October.

Monk out for the rest of the season? If so that's a big loss.

It will be good to see him back. But, who will he partner - Izzie or Tate?

tate, he is on form at the moment and to put him on the bench would be stupid; i doubt lawrence will start though i read somewhere that he has an outside chance of even making the bench?
