TEAM NEWS: Zaha and Wan-Bissaka train ahead of Huddersfield

29 March 2019

Roy Hodgson is hoping for good news on Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Wilfried Zaha ahead of tomorrow's game against Huddersfield Town.

Hodgson confirmed in his pre-match press conference that the duo trained today, after both players had to withdraw from international duty with the England U21s and Ivory Coast, respectively.

"They've both been nursing injuries. However, they were out in training this morning, so if nothing happens in terms of reaction overnight, I'm hoping they will be fit to play but it is touch-and-go."

The Eagles manager also confirmed that Bakary Sako has returned to training this week, meaning that Hodgson has just one long-term injury absentee in Mamadou Sakho.

"Bakary [Sako] is back; Mama [Sakho] is the only one we have at the moment - it is an amazing record and a great compliment to our medical and sports science people this late into the season. But Bakary has only trained for three or four days."
