Striker Gorka Pintado will face a late fitness test on a thigh injury while highly-rated midfielder Joe Allen will undergo tests on his recurring hamstring problem.

Fedde Bessone (groin) should be fit to be involved, but Guillam Bauza (knee) and Albert Serran (ankle) are likely to be missing.

Ferrie Bodde is a long-term absentee with a knee injury though, as the Swans look to extend their unbeaten run to six games.

Lee Trundle could return to the starting line-up after scoring from the bench in the win over QPR last time out, while record signing Craig Beattie will also be hoping to earn a starting spot.
