Smith was an unused substitute for last week’s 3-0 Continental Cup victory over Chelsea and Yankey expects her to be as strong as ever.
“It is a massive plus for us,” the midfielder told Arsenal.com. “We signed Kelly, Alex [Scott] and Gemma [Davison] together and we were just unfortunate that Kelly was injured while away with England.
“She hasn't actually played a game for us yet so I think it will be a big boost. She has been with us back in training for the last week on a non-contact basis so hopefully when we come back from our England trip she will have had a few more sessions.
“But she looks really sharp and to be honest she doesn't look any different to how she used to. I think it will take her a while to get match fit but you can already see some of those technical qualities where you wouldn't even know anything has been wrong with her.19 Jun 2012
