Craig Davies: Return could be pivotal to Barnsley finding their form again

The eight-goal striker limped out of the 1-0 win at Charlton at the end of October with the problem and was expected to face close to two months on the sidelines.

But Hill, whose side have toiled in Davies' absence, has confirmed the 26-year-old could return to training on Monday and be involved for next weekend's game at Bolton.

"Craig Davies is in contention to return to training next week, but I don't want to risk any long-term injuries by bringing people back too early," Hill said ahead of this weekend's derby with Huddersfield.

"Touch wood, he is ahead of schedule. It would be a great boost, not just to the team and supporters, but also by the impact it would have on the opposition.

"It has been very difficult to play the way we want to play without Craig Davies in our team. He could be involved against Bolton, but maybe that could be too soon."

eah, that'll do nicely. Guess they're feeling pretty flush after the World Cup and see a few successful years ahead with our new manager. Get Vidal in asap now, and let's get things back on track.

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.
