Generally upbeat news coming from scoring contingent. Giuseppe Rossi is recovvering nicely, and is expected to be ready to go this weekend. Yesterday he even went in for extra conditioning to be ready for Sunday's match.

Nihat will not be ready this weekend, but he is expected to be back for the home match against Sporting Gijon two-and-a-half weeks from now. Getting him back at full strength is desparately needed.

Finally, Guille Franco is doubtful for Sunday. His ribs are still in pretty rough shape, and the pain level is going to have to go down for him to be ready on Sunday.
