JC set for surprise return

West Ham's James Collins could be set to feature against Azerbaijan at the Millennium Stadium tomorrow night - despite earlier fears that he could be out of action for several weeks.

Collins injured a shoulder whilst playing for Wales during Saturday's 3-2 win in Northern Ireland and it was thought that he would be out of action for several weeks as a result.

But the Welsh FA have now revealed that the injury is far less serious than initially thought.

"The first diagnosis was six weeks out - but he is now back training with the squad," said a spokesman.

"He seems to be okay but we will have to wait for any reaction. A final medical verdict will be made on the day of the game."

Nigel Reo-Coker - who missed Friday's defeat against Austria with an ankle injury - is set to start against Poland in this evening's under-21 clash. Anton Ferdinand is also expected to play.
