Injury Worries Dissipating

Good news. Villarreal will see almost all injured players available for action on Saturday against Sporting Gijon. Up front, Llorente, Nihat, and Guille Franco all return, and will join Rossi to provide Manuel Pellegrini with options towards goal. The midfield will see the return of Ariel Ibagaza, giving a full slate to work with - which creates the possibly awkward question of whether Senna will get the start (I say no). In defense, there is still some friction. Gonzalo, of course, is still out, and will be for a few more weeks. Angel, unfortunately, also is listed on the injury chart. He may not be ruled out yet, but it is likely that he will be. Capdevila, though, will be back and fully focused on this match, as he is suspended for Wednesday's try against Panathinaikos.

I will a preview up tomorrow, as well as anything else I come across.
