Bundee Aki and Matt Healy have been cleared to play for Connacht in their crunch Pro12 collision with Glasgow Warriors at the Sportsground this Saturday [3.0pm]. 

Pat Lam's men must win against the in-form visitors to earn home advantage for their play-off semi-final, and have been given an enormous boost with the news that inspirational centre Aki and free-scoring wing Healy have recovered from the knee and back injuries respectively. 

Aki missed the shock defeat 22-21 to Treviso last Friday dues to a knock he picked up against Munster last month.

Healy, the league's top try scorer, is also back in action, while Craig Ronaldson will train fully later in the week after overcoming an ankle problem.

Danie Poolman returns to light running this week, as the 27-year-old wing continues his recovery from a foot injury under the supervision of the medical and fitness teams.

Props Denis Buckley and Nathan White continue to rehab and remain unavailable for selection.

Although the losing bonus point in Italy did ensure their qualification for the top four for the first time since the competition changed format to home and away fixtures in 2003-04, it was a tough one to take for Connacht and leaves them with a do-or-die face-off with Glasgow. 

Victory will guarantee a top-two finish however and see guarantee them the coveted advantage of playing on their own patch for the last-four showdown.
