Gary Potter reveals Jefferson Montero and Wilfried Bony edging closer to returns

Swansea City made a return to the Championship this season, however, it has not gone as well as they would have initially hoped for.

The Swans have struggled to be consistent in their quest for a quick return to the Premier League, having had a patchy run of form recently.

Graham Potters’ side, who were convincing winners against Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night, have had their troubles with injuries, however, it appears that they could be in store for some positive news.

According to the club’s official website, Swansea could be welcoming back Jefferson Montero and Wilfried Bony to the side shortly.

Montero has been out since early September with a thigh injury and could make a return to action next week, whilst Bony has been a long-term absentee with a cruciate ligament injury.

“Jeff has made really good progress, although Reading is probably a bit too soon for him,” Potter told the club’s official website.

“We are looking more at next week for Jeff.

“Wilf has trained today and he is also making really good progress, but again this game is a bit too soon for him.”

The Verdict:

Swansea have certainly missed the duo this season and will be pleased to be able to welcome the pair back into the fold in the near future.

The Swans have netted just 15 times in the Championship so far, and despite sitting near the middle of the table, there is only five other teams with fewer goals in the division.

Bony is a proven goalscorer, although he has gone off the boil and could look to restart his career once again when he returns, whilst Montero gives them the creativity needed, as he started the campaign by providing two assists before heading into the treatment room.
