Swansea City handed Wilfried Bony injury boost

Wilfried Bony grimaces after injuring his hamstring

Swansea City have received an injury boost with the news striker Wilfried Bony will only be out for 10 days.

Bony limped off with a hamstring injury during Swansea's 1-0 defeat to Valencia in the Europa League.

Manager Michael Laudrup had feared Swansea's record signing would be out for "several weeks."

Following a scan the Ivory Coast international was diagnosed with a Grade One hamstring strain which has a recovery period of around 10 days.

However the Swans will be without defender Angel Rangel for between two and three weeks after the Spaniards suffered a Grade Two calf strain.

Rangel suffered the injury during the defeat to Valencia and also underwent a scan on Monday.
