Quar­tet in con­tention

South Wales Evening Post - - SWANS -

SWANSEA City are set to have a quar­tet of in­jured play­ers back in con­tention as they look to get back to win­ning ways against Bolton Wan­der­ers.

Man­ager Gra­ham Pot­ter con­firmed that Wil­fried Bony could be in­volved in the match­day squad for the first time since tear­ing his ACL in the draw at Leices­ter in Fe­bru­ary.

Jef­fer­son Mon­tero has also com­pleted his re­cov­ery from a thigh in­jury and is also in the mix for the Univer­sity of Bolton Sta­dium clash, al­though the pair are likely to be re­stricted to bench roles rather than rushed back into the start­ing XI.

“Jef­fer­son is in con­tention, he has had a good week of train­ing and ob­vi­ously we will just see how he is over the next cou­ple of days but he is un­der con­sid­er­a­tions,” said Pot­ter.

“I can tell you he keeps telling me he is ready to play, so that is nor­mally a good sign.”

George By­ers and Tom Car­roll have also been back in train­ing af­ter their nig­gling prob­lems, with mid­fielder Car­roll hav­ing un­der­gone a se­ries of in­jec­tions to try and man­age a groin is­sue.

But full-back Kyle Naughton is a doubt with an an­kle knock which saw him only re­turn to train­ing on Thurs­day. If he were to miss out Con­nor Roberts may be moved back to the de­fen­sive role with Bar­rie Mckay and Joel Asoro the lead­ing con­tenders to take the right-wing spot.
