Newbridge Sarsfields and Kildare star Alan Smith is set to return from a knee injury in a matter of weeks, not months, as first feared.

Smith injured his knee playing for Sarsfields in their Leinster Club Senior Football Championship defeat to Ballymun Kickhams on Sunday, and it was believed the injury was serious.

However, following a scan, Smith has revealed on Twitter that he has not damaged his cruciate ligament, but instead is suffering from bone swelling and damaged muscle behind the knee.

The left-half-forward is due to return to training in the coming weeks.
