The injury handed summer signing Bardsley his opportunity and the veteran full-back seized has his chance by starting every Premier League game since. However, the former Stoke player is at risk of missing this weekends clash at the Liberty Stadium after suffering a hamstring related problem in the 1-1 draw with champions elect Manchester City. Elsewhere, Stephen Ward [knee] is closing in on a return having managed to come through 72 minutes for the under-23s unscathed on Monday while James Tarkowski is hoping to shake off a niggling groin problem.
