VICTOR Moses raised the hopes of Stoke City fans yesterday when he hinted that he could be fit to face Swansea City on Sunday.
The loan winger has been a revelation since joining the Potters in the summer, but he limped off with a recurrence of a thigh problem inside the first 20 minutes of Stoke’s 3-1 loss at Sunderland on October 4.
It was feared the Chelsea man could be sidelined for some time, but Moses Tweeted Wednesday that he was back in training with Mark Hughes’ squad.
He wrote to fans: “Feel good to be back training and now looking forward to the game on Sunday. Thanks for all your support.”
With Mame Diouf also working his way back to fitness and Peter Odemwingie a long-term fixture in the treatment room, Hughes will be hoping Moses can defy the odds to return for Sunday’s televised game at the Britannia Stadium.
He has been the focus of much of Stoke’s brightest attacking play in recent weeks, and could be key to the Potters taking the points from the high-flying Welshmen, who are currently fifth in the Premier League table after a bright start to the new campaign.
