Russell Martin confirms the information we reported two days ago

In a club update to the press yesterday afternoon Russell Martin spoke confidently about the chances of Saturdays game in the FA Cup v Southampton going ahead. He also confirmed one of our reports from recent times, one which seemed to be greeted with some disdain by several swans followers.
The report which is here —>
Our report declared that the swans were training with minimal numbers due to the Covid outbreak. Confirming this in his brief to the press yesterday Martin stated “The QPR and Millwall games were called off and were outside of our control, and then Luton and Fulham we would have had to play those games with only ten fit players I think. We are hopeful we will have a lot of people back in this week. They will not be fully training because of the protocols, which mean they have to do a day of really light work because of the 10 days of isolation. They will not be able to train fully with us until later in the week. We are looking forward to getting everyone back together, having had only ten players available last week. Hopefully we are over the worst of it. We had to shut the training ground down for five days because of the outbreak, on governmental advice. We then came back in just after Christmas and the guys have trained three days since then, and that was with ten players, which has since risen to twelve "
It’s always satisfying when certain information reported on here is confirmed by official sources, it happens a lot as we know, this latest information is still a blow though. After such a well chartered training regime since August which has seen the swans fitness levels rise incredibly, this latest confirmation won’t be easy to deal with. However, it’s good news there is some light at the end of the tunnel, it’s just a shame the light bulbs in a few peoples heads are on dimmer.
