Bellamy on Come Back Trail
West Ham manager Alan Curbishley is wondering whether to give Wales permission to play Craig Bellamy in their game a week on Wednesday against San Marino,
"It's been five long weeks since Craig was streaking away from Reading's defence and scoring, but after having the same surgeon and the same operation as Michael Owen on Thursday, Craig did a little bit of running on Friday. It's a difficult situation because, if Craig's fit, then he could get some match fitness back for Wales before he plays for us against Sunderland."
With Dean Ashton out of the Sunderland game Curbishley is obviously desperate to have Bellamy available again. The question is does he gamble on letting Bellamy gain match fitness for Wales at the risk of him suffering another injury?
