March 27, 2011

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is hoping to return to the lineup on Saturday, after a long absence to due to a groin injury, according to ESPNsoccernet.

Gerrard is speculated to have suffered the injury on Feb. 6. He tried to return at the end of the month but was forced to have surgery mid-March.

The 30-year-old wasn't expected to return until a month later, in mid-April. Coach Steve Clarke stated that the midfielder may be ready for the Reds' match against the Baggies.

"It's good, I'm probably three or four days away from full training, so hopefully I'll be involved against West Brom," he told Sky Sports. "It depends on how the next three or four days go.

"Being injured is the worst part of being a footballer. It's frustrating missing games being on the treatment table, so you do everything you can in your rehab and away from football to get back as quickly as possible."
