Alexander return great for Laws

Alexander has been out of action since picking up a calf problem in

the defeat to Bolton last month. Laws is happy with the progress he

is making and is hopeful the 38-year-old could return for next

weekend’s clash with Aston Villa. “Grezza will be on the training

pitch this week,” Laws told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph. “He

has been progressing well and we are really pleased with that. “It

is now a matter of him stepping up his work and seeing how it goes

for him. He doesn’t have many injuries so it is hard to judge but

he is ready to step up.”
