Jamie Roberts could return from injury in time to face Australia in the second Test on Saturday.

British and Irish Lions centre Jamie Roberts could be fit in time for his side's second Test with Australia at the weekend.

The Welshman was forced to miss the tourists' 23-21 win in the opener with the Wallabies on Saturday due to a hamstring injury.

However, Roberts, who suffered the problem against the Waratahs nine days ago, could now be back in time to face the men in gold following successful treatment.

"We don't think Jamie is too far away. He's up and running and is potentially available for next weekend," head coach Warren Gatland said.

Manu Tuilagi and Tommy Bowe have both been declared fit for the second Test.
