American international could be in line for a return to training this week...
MARK BOWEN admits the next 48 hours will prove crucial to Geoff Cameron’s hopes of making a first-team return against Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday evening.
The United States international has been forced to miss the Potters last two outings against Watford and Leicester City having sustained a head injury during the build-up to the clash against the Hornets at Vicarage Road.
Speaking to the media on Tuesday afternoon, the City assistant boss revealed that the versatile star hadn’t yet returned to training, although he was hoping for more positive news within the next day or two.
“Geoff still hasn’t trained unfortunately as he is still having one or two problems with the concussion he sustained a few weeks ago,” he said.
“We are hoping for good news on him over the next 48 hours, but it is still too early to say whether he will or won’t be available for the game on Monday."
“He has obviously been out of action for a little while now, and he is frustrated, so he will be eager to get back within the group.
“Obviously, as soon as he starts training then we will gauge an idea of where he is at in terms of his fitness, and things like that, but until then it is difficult to know.”
He added: “As I said, hopefully we will have some positive news within the next couple of days, which will enable him to join back up with the group towards the end of the week.”
