Collins In Quick Comeback

JAMES Collins may yet play for Wales against Azerbaijan tonight after making a surprise comeback from the shoulder injury which he sustained in his country's 3-2 victory over Northern Ireland.

The former Cardiff City star had initially feared an absence of up to six weeks with a dislocated shoulder.

But after resting in Cardiff the 22-year-old central defender has returned to training and is awaiting a final verdict by the Wales medical staff today.

An FA of Wales spokesman said: "The first diagnosis was six weeks, but he is now back with the squad and has trained. He seems to be okay but we will have to wait for any reaction."

Danny Gabbidon is set to return to the Wales side for tonight's World Cup Qualifier at the Millennium Stadium.
