Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup hopes for triple injury boost ahead of Norwich City clash

WAYNE Routledge should be fit to feature when Swansea City bid to continue their Premier League hot streak against Norwich City this weekend.

And in what could be a triple injury boost for boss Michael Laudrup, fellow winger Pablo Hernandez and goalkeeper Michel Vorm may also come into contention for the Canaries clash.

Routledge was back on the training ground yesterday having missed Swansea's victory over Arsenal last weekend with a bruised ankle.

And Laudrup is also expecting Hernandez and Vorm will rejoin the group at some point this week as Swansea prepare to face another of the top flight's form teams.

Spanish international Hernandez missed the Arsenal victory with a thigh strain he picked up in the win over West Bromwich Albion a week ago.

And Vorm, Swansea's first-choice goalkeeper, has not played since tearing a groin muscle at Manchester City on October 27.

Laudrup would be left with some big decisions to make should the trio return in the wake of Swansea's fabulous performance at the Emirates Stadium.

Routledge and Hernandez have been two of the stars of the season at the Liberty, while Laudrup hinted last week that Vorm would be reinstated when fit despite the impressive form of deputy Gerhard Tremmel.

"Wayne is back in training so that's very positive," the Swansea manager reported.

"And Pablo may start training on Wednesday or Thursday.

"We will have to see if we can get them both back, because they have different kinds of injuries.

    must agree hadoken with your second comment , i had the jitters when trems first came in, but he has shown that he is a very good keeper in his last few games .

    If anyone is reading this of influence, can we start with the same squad and formation that did the business against west brom. Michu up front on his own is working well for us. Also dont let tremmel rott away this time, he is good form, I hope he gets some games outside of the cup, he has proven himself at this level, but he will only stay in that shape if he gets the chance to play from time to time.
