Rafael Benitez thinks John Terry's return to action could give Chelsea the steel they have been lacking in recent weeks.

Chelsea's grip on a Champions League qualification place has loosened of late thanks to a woeful run of home form which has seen the club win just one league game at Stamford Bridge since Benitez took charge in November.

The Londoners have severely missed the leadership and defensive qualities of their skipper and for Benitez, the 32-year-old's return can not come soon enough. "We have some good players. Some of them show more character," Benitez said when asked about Terry's comeback.
