Barnard boost for Latics

7 March 2013

Striker back in full training

Lee Barnard is back in full training with Latics today.

The on-loan Southampton striker (pictured) missed Saturday's home game against Sheffield United as he was troubled by a tight hamstring.

Barnard, who felt the injury in the FA Cup with Budweiser tie at Everton, has undergone rehab work with Head of Sports Medicine Jon Guy in the early part of the week.

He has emerged with flying colours and given the green light to resume full training today.

Defender Cliff Byrne is making a speedy recovery from the ankle ligament injury he sustained three weeks ago.

Byrne is due to have another injection on Monday and has an outside chance of being ready to return against AFC Bournemouth on Saturday week.
