Routledge ruled out for four weeks
20th January 2015
Swansea City winger Wayne Routledge has been ruled out for four weeks due to a calf strain.
Routledge, who has featured in 19 of the club's 22 Barclays Premier League fixtures this campaign, came off after just 32 minutes of last weekend's home defeat to Chelsea before being replaced by Marvin Emnes.
But there was better news for boss Garry Monk today as Ecuadorian international Jefferson Montero returned to full training for the first time since sustaining a hamstring injury.
The 25-year-old has not featured since the Boxing Day win over Aston Villa, with Montero being forced off after just 22 minutes.
It means he will be available for selection for Saturday's FA Cup trip to Championship outfit Blackburn Rovers (12.45pm).
Leon Britton also returned to training today after missing out on the loss to Chelsea after sustaining a slight groin strain.
Captain Ashley Williams, meanwhile, is likely to miss the trip to Ewood Park after sustaining a shoulder injury against Chelsea, but he is expected to return to training next week.
