Oscar Garcia: Injury list clearing up

Right-back Bruno played for the reserves on Monday after a hamstring injury and midfielder Andrea Orlandi is close to shaking off a knee problem, with both in contention for next weekend's trip to Reading.

Garcia told the club's official website: "Bruno is doing well. He said to us that he finished the game on Monday well and he has done all the work in training this week, so we are happy with how he is progressing.

"Andrea has continued training with us but he still has some discomfort in his knee. For now he hasn't had to stop but it is always a concern whenever a player is not 100 per cent."

Striker Ashley Barnes has yet to recover from a hip knock, however.

"Ashley has not trained with the group yet, he is still doing individual work on his recovery," added Garcia.
