Skipper Monk has missed the last two games with a calf injury and must prove his fitness to boss Paulo Sousa.

Spanish striker Pintado has not featured since the goalless draw at Doncaster last month and is also a doubt due to a thigh problem.

Playmaker Andrea Orlandi will definitely not feature as the former Barcelona man is struggling with a thigh problem.

Joe Allen came on as a substitute for his first appearance in a month in the excellent midweek win at leaders West Brom, and the midfielder is expected to be on the bench once again.

The Swans are in a rich vein of form and are now unbeaten in seven Championship games.
