Gareth Bale is back in training - and back in contention for Saturday’s Premier League clash against Stoke at the Lane.

Good news on Gareth

The winger picked up a hamstring in the win at Fulham on December 1.

“It’s good news,” said Andre Villas-Boas. “First, for the player because he wants to be back in the group and he’s made a tremendous recovery. He's worked extremely hard.”

Michael Dawson, who also picked up a hamstring injury at Craven Cottage, is also training again with the squad.

“Michael was injured in the same game as Gareth and they’ve both returned to training,” added Andre. “It’s great to have them back.

“Benoit is also recovering his fitness, along with Scott Parker. Scott is a little ahead of Benoit, but he’s getting back into shape and back into contention.”
