Premier League - Drogba fit to face Wolves
Thu, 21 Oct 16:50:00 2010
Didier Drogba looks set to return to lead the Chelsea attack against struggling Wolves on Saturday, but Frank Lampard will have to wait a bit longer for his comeback - much to the frustration of the England midfielder.
Ivory Coast international Drogba has missed the Blues' last two matches because of a virus but has now resumed full training ahead of the visit of Mick McCarthy's side, third bottom of the Premier League.
Lampard, though, is expected to need more recovery time following his hernia operation which has seen the 32-year-old out of action since August 28.
Assistant first-team coach Paul Clement confirmed: "The players who played in Moscow (on Tuesday) were given the day off. The substitutes and players recovering from injury or illness, like Didier Drogba, came in the afternoon and we had a good session with them. Didier looks good and he trained well."
Lampard, however, needs more rehabilitation time before he can be considered by Carlo Ancelotti.
Speaking to Chelsea TV, Clement continued: "Frank is progressing really well. He had a terrific session earlier in the week with (assistant fitness coach) Chris Jones doing some individual work, he's really pushing himself."
