Chelsea boss Grant hopeful of Cech return

Chelsea boss Avram Grant says Petr Cech could be fit for the return-leg of their Champions League quarterfinal against Fenerbahce.

The Czech Republic international has been struggling with an ankle injury for a few weeks but Grant claims he is on the brink of full fitness.

"Cech had made a lot of improvement and we need to see where he is at the end of the recovery period," Grant said.

"He is better than 50-50, he is almost ready. It will be a medical decision. But we have other goalkeepers who have done a good job this year."
