There’s some better news on the injury front with reports that Rafael van der Vaart is making good progress with his calf injury and looks set to return against Wolves on March 6th.
VDV picked up the injury in the Bolton game and aggravated it again in training last Sunday. The re-occurrence of the injury kept the Dutchman out of our 3-1 defeat at the hand of Blackpool, but it looks like he’ll soon make a return to action, having Tweeted last night: “I will be back for Wolves and Milan for sure.”
Gareth Bale is also reported to be making good progress and is still targeting the Milan game for his return. After last night’s showing the two of them can’t come back soon enough.
