Early Swansea team news emerges ahead of Bolton clash



Swansea boss Graham Potter has been handed a major injury boost ahead of his side’s game against relegation-threatened Bolton Wanderers at the weekend. 

Striker Wilfried Bony looks set to return to the side for their game this weekend, after a lengthy injury lay-off for the Ivorian international.

In his pre-match press conference, Potter revealed that Bony might be likely to feature for his side this weekend.

‘Wilfried has trained well. He has progressed and he has looked sharp,’ said the Swansea boss.

‘He is with the group and he is now available for selection.

Bony has been sidelined since February after rupturing a cruciate ligament, so his return to the side is likely to be a huge boost to their promotion chances this season.

‘He has had a big injury and it has taken him a bit of time to get over it, but he has worked hard and you can see the qualities he has already.

‘What he needs now is to build up his time on the pitch.

‘We will have a look again on Friday but hopefully, if all goes well, he can travel with us to Bolton.

Potter will be faced with a potential selection headache for the trip to Bolton, with Bony challenging Oliver McBurnie for the starting spot in attack for the Swans.

The Verdict: 

The return of Bony will be a huge boost to Graham Potter’s side this season.

It has come at the right time as well, with the busy festive period edging ever-closer, so Bony will be keen to prove himself when he is deemed fully-fit by Potter.

His return to the side will come as a good thing for Oliver McBurnie who will now have competition for his starting spot in the Swansea XI.
