Lawrence Back In 2-3 Weeks

Swansea City defender Dennis Lawrence has received a boost with the news that he should be back within 2-3 weeks.

"This is very good news"
It was originally feared that he'd miss the rest of the season after early prognosis suggested the defender had suffered serious Medial Ligament damage in his knee.

A knee specialist Dr Dai Rees was in attendance at Alexandra Stadium on Saturday and was able to assist Swansea City physio Richie Evans.

Evans Spoke on the Official site::

'Dennis has a mild strain of the medial ligament in his knee, but it is nothing serious.

'He twisted his knee in a challenge and the opposing player landed on top of it.

Fortunately a surgeon friend of mine, who happens to be a Crewe fan, was in the crowd and he checked Dennis out at half-time. He allayed our initial fears.

'Now once the swelling goes down we can start working on getting Dennis back as soon as possible.

'We'll keep assessing him, but at the moment it only looks as if he'll only be out for two to three weeks.''


Roberto Martinez has not ruled out a move for a defender in the loan market but wants more time to asses the condition of Lawrence before making any move..

Martinez told the Evening Post:

Alan showed that when he came on and did well at Crewe. The loan market is a possibility, but we'll see how Dennis comes along first."


This is also a boost to manager Martinez who has praised Lawrence, despite criticism from the fans.

Alan Tate is likely to replace Lawrence for the next few weeks but that only leaves us with 1 extra replacement at the back - Kevin Austin.

The only other injury in the squad is Paul Anderson who should be back at the beginning of next month.

Good news for Big Den, hopefully he can carry on playing as he has been recently, radio seems to think he is not making as many mistakes as usual.

I can't see Martinez dipping into the loan market, no need to as Tate can do a job for the next 3 weeks, maybe would have been different if he was out for the whole season though.

This is where our credentials start to get tested with the picking up of injuries on a weekly basis!
