Swans suffer Tate blow

Defender out for two weeks after suffering calf injury in warm-up

Alan Tate: Swansea defender set to miss games against Bolton and Wolves

Swansea have suffered a blow with the news that Alan Tate is set to be out for two to three weeks with a calf injury.

His spell on the sidelines comes after the 29-year-old suffered the injury during the warm-up before Saturday's 3-0 win over Blackburn.

His place on the bench against Rovers was taken by Josh McEachran and Tate, who broke his leg earlier in the season, is now set to miss the forthcoming games with relegation strugglers Bolton and Wolves.

The defender is hoping to be available for the trip to his former club Manchester United on Sunday, May 6th - in a clash being shown live on Sky Sports 1HD.

"His timing hasn't been great as far as injuries are concerned this year, and it's been disappointing for him because he has been a key member of our group since I've been here."

Swans boss Brendan Rodgers told the club's official website: "We are looking at two or three weeks out, but his powers of recovery are usually very good so we will assess things and see how he goes on.
