Wing duo's fitness boost
8th January 2014
Swansea City duo Pablo Hernandez and Roland Lamah have given Michael Laudrup a timely boost as they near a first-team return.
Spanish international Hernandez pulled up with a hamstring strain in the tenth minute of the 3-2 defeat to Manchester City at the Liberty on New Year's Day, and missed the FA Cup win at Old Trafford last weekend.
Lamah - who came off the bench to replace Hernandez following his injury - is recovering from an abductor strain sustained during a training session, while he too missed Sunday's clash against Manchester United.
But they could be back in action within two to three weeks, which will bolster Laudrup's options out wide.
Meanwhile, Gwion Edwards and Leroy Lita have returned to the Swans following loan spells at St Johnstone and Brighton.
Edwards featured 17 times for the Scottish Premiership side, scoring once, with the 20-year-old making his debut in their Europa League win over Rosenborg in Norway.
Lita clocked up five appearances for Brighton, with his sole goal coming in a 3-1 Championship victory at Doncaster.
