Swansea’s Clement unsure of Bony for Brighton and Hove clash

Comments()
The 28-year-old has been sidelined with a hamstring injury and the Swans gaffer is still unsure of his involvement against the Seagulls

Swansea City manager Paul Clement has revealed that Wilfried Bony has a 50-50 chance of featuring against Brighton and Hove Albion in Saturday’s Premier League clash.

The Cote d’Ivoire international has been struggling with a recurring hamstring strain since September’s international break and has missed four consecutive games for the Liberty Stadium outfit.

But after going through Thursday’s training session unscathed, the Swans handler admits the former Manchester City man is in his plans for the weekend but he also voiced his concern over Bony suffering another setback.

“This weekend is going to be tight for him – I would rate him at 50-50 to be involved in the squad," Clement told club website.

“We have to weigh it up, with the time he has missed and the injuries he’s had.

“We don’t want to risk anything, but we also want him back as quickly as possible because he can add more goals.

"At the moment there is a lot of responsibility on Tammy Abraham’s shoulders but we need others to help by providing goals and scoring goals.

“With Wilfried in the team, there is a better chance of that happening.”
