Defender Alan Tate has paid tribute to Swansea's medical team after making his return from a broken leg for the reserves.

Tate, 29, suffered the injury in a bizarre golf buggy crash in August and was expected to be out for at least six months, but he has managed to return in just over four and played 45 minutes in Wednesday's 1-0 win at Hereford.

He said: "I enjoyed it, it's good to be back, especially as I am two months ahead of schedule."
