Tate Out For 6 Weeks

Tate Out For 6 Weeks

Swansea City Defender Alan Tate will be out of action for 6 weeks with a Fractured Knee Cap.

Tate picked up a knock against Walsall in the 1st round of the Carling Cup on the 13th of August. He has seemed to have aggravated this injury and has caused a fracture in the Knee Cap.

Swansea City Defender
Told BBC Sport:

"I know what it is now and hopefully after the six weeks I'll have a few games in the reserves and then try and get back in the first team with the rest of the lads.'


Roberto Martinez also was quick to speak out about loosing one of his key players.

He Told
BBC Sport:

"You cannot keep Alan out of training or playing and he really had to stay out,' he said.

We knew there was something wrong and to be fair it could have been worse.

Six weeks with Alan will be five so I'm looking forward to getting him back quickly.' '


Angel Rangel has fitted in well in Tate's prefered position at RB and could see him move into the centre of defence to ease Martinez's defensive headaches.
