Bobby Convey is close, but the Sporting KC midfielder is not quite ready to return yet and will miss his seventh consecutive game this week as SKC faces the Montreal Impact. Instead he hopes to return this weekend in time to play Houston and come back for good. So far this season has been a frustrating one with "a series of calf strains" keeping Convey out.
"His fitness is there," Sporting KC manager Peter Vermes said. " It’s getting there now. I wouldn’t say it’s 90 minutes, but maybe around 60. Hopefully, he’s going to get some serious minutes coming up now. He’s got to get back in a routine, especially after being injured for the last month."
This is Convey’s first season with Sporting KC after playing the last three seasons with the San Jose Earthquakes. He has 1 goal and 2 assists so far in the 2012 season.
