Chico Flores: Due to resume training on Thursday

The centre-half has been battling a thigh injury and did not feature in Sunday's friendly against Exeter.

But next week's European qualifier against Malmo or Hibernian is a realistic target, and Laudrup's defensive hand was strengthened further when recent signing Jordi Amat came through a half of the Exeter game despite a shoulder problem.

Laudrup told the South Wales Evening Post: "Jordi came into the game with a shoulder injury, he had a knock the other day.

"He wanted to play like everyone else so he had 45 minutes, but he was not 100%.

"I think he will be okay for Europe. We will have to see with Chico as well, I hope he will be back in training on Thursday.

"We will have all four centre-backs back again for the start of the Europa League. We have very good depth in our squad this season."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
