Swansea City defender Alan Tate hopes to make his comeback against Bolton Wanderers.

Tate, 29, has been sidelined since the end of August when he broke his left leg in a bizarre golf buggy accident.

But the Swansea vice-captain came through a 90-minute run-out for the reserves at West Brom this week.

Now Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers is set to include Tate in his plans for the FA Cup fourth-round tie at the Reebok. Tate, who led out the Swans in their Premier League opener against Manchester City, has zoomed back into action a month ahead of schedule.
