Osbourne on the comeback trail

The 22-year-old has been utilised as a defender by City boss Chris Coleman, and it was while playing in that position that he sustained the injury against Swansea on November 25.

Osbourne has resumed training and could be back in the first-team reckoning early next month.

"He is not ready yet, I think he needs two or three reserve games because of the nature of his injury and fact that he has been out for quite a long time," said Coleman.

"The specialist thought he might be an extra four weeks but he has made excellent progress and has joined in three or four training sessions and I have told the medical staff that he looks ready for the reserves.

"But obviously we have got to be a bit careful, for Ozzy's confidence as well, so we won't be rushing him back before he is ready."
