Sylvain Wiltord has given Rennes a timely boost by returning to training ahead of next weekend´s home clash against leaders Lyon in Ligue 1.

A thigh strain has kept the former Arsenal forward out of action for the past couple of weeks, during which time the Brittany club have lost league games against Bordeaux and Monaco.

In Wiltord´s absence, Rennes could also only draw 1-1 at home to SK Brann in the UEFA Cup, putting their hopes of progression into the knockout stages in jeopardy.
