Swansea City forward Marvin Emnes is set to give Swans boss Garry Monk a boost by returning to fitness in time for Saturdays Premier League clash with Southampton at the Liberty.

Emnes completed his first full 90 minutes for the U21 side in their 2-1 defeat to Cardiff City on Monday night.

The Dutchman, who signed a permanent deal at the Liberty in the summer, has not featured for the first team after injuring his knee in pre-season.

The former Middlesbrough star was an unused substitute during Swansea's 4-2 defeat at Chelsea on the weekend, but hopes to force his way into contention for the visit of Ronald Koeman's Saints.

Emnes told the clubs website:

It has been a long time. I was looking forward to playing games again and I now have that chance.

In pre-season I was playing well and having good training sessions, and I felt really sharp. To pick up an injury was very difficult but it's great to be back now.

When you get injured it is always disappointing, but the team is playing really well at the moment and I'm looking forward to getting back and helping my team-mates as soon as possible.

And it would be nice to be back against Southampton on Saturday
