Trundle injury worries Swans

Swansea's FA Cup hero Lee Trundle could be ruled out of the next round after suffering a depressed fracture of his cheekbone in the win over Preston.
Trundle struck with a close-range volley to seal a famous 2-1 win over the visitors from Division One.
But a collision makes it touch and go whether Trundle will be fit in time for the fifth round on 14 February.
"He's having an operation on Sunday afternoon and could be out for three weeks," Swansea boss Brian Flynn said.

Preston led 1-0 with 10 minutes left, but then Andy Robinson equalised with a glorious free-kick before Trundle grabbed the headlines with the winner.

The draw for the fifth round will be held on Monday and everyone at the Vetch is hoping for a choice draw against one of the Premiership giants, preferably at home.

Scouser Trundle desperately wants to play either of home-town teams Liverpool or Everton.

A draw against either of those would see him champing at the bit to be fit in time.
