London: Chelsea captain John Terry is making progress in his bid for a return to first-team action and could feature in this weekend's Premier League match against Stoke, manager Rafael Benitez said on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old former England centre-back has been out of action for the European champions since a 1-1 draw with Liverpool on November 11 following a collision with Luis Suarez.

Initial indications were Terry would be out for three weeks but he is still to play first-team football nearly two months on.
