WALES centre Tyler Morgan will make his Dragons comeback against Worcester in the Anglo-Welsh Cup at Rodney Parade on Friday while tighthead Dan Suter is set for his first appearance for the region.

Morgan will be a replacement against the Warriors after being sidelined since suffering an ankle injury in the Guinness PRO14 loss to the Ospreys in October.

The 22-year-old from Caerleon, who is in talks over a fresh Dragons-only contract, will get some game time in his bid to start at 13 in the return to league action versus Glasgow in Newport a week on Friday.

Former Ospreys prop Suter, 24, will make his first appearance in a Dragons matchday squad after suffering an ankle injury in the pre-season loss to Exeter in Devon.

The Dragons don’t expect to have the services of Wales wing Hallam Amos, who is in the Six Nations squad but missed out on selection for the Scotland opener because he hasn’t played since suffering an ankle injury against Cardiff Blues on Boxing Day.

However, the return of Morgan, who was in fine form before the Swansea blow that led to surgery, will provide a shot in the arm for the three-quarters.

“We will stick Tyler on the bench and give him some game time, we just need to ease him back into it because he has been out for quite some time,” said forwards coach Ceri Jones.

“It’s lovely to see him back on the pitch, as it is Dan Suter because we have badly missed them over this period.

“Dan is a great lad and it’s just a matter of him trying to put a run of performances together to show us what he is made of, because we haven’t had a chance to see that so far.

“He is just a very honest player in everything he does. He comes in every day and works really hard, he knuckles down and everything that you ask of him he gives 100 per cent.”

Suter is set to back up tighthead Nicky Thomas with in-form Lloyd Fairbrother given a breather ahead of the return of the PRO14.

Back row forward James Sheekey is set for eight weeks out after suffering a calf strain in the opening stages of last week’s 40-21 loss to Saracens at Allianz Park.

Loosehead Sam Hobbs went off with a knee injury in north London but should be back to fight for a place against Glasgow.

The Dragons cannot qualify for the semi-finals of the Anglo-Welsh Cup but the Warriors could make the last four of the development competition if they win and Northampton slip up against Harlequins.
