Swansea boast a full-strength squad.

Forward Stephen Dobbie missed last weekend's disappointing 2-1 defeat at lowly Preston with a back spasm, while full-back Angel Rangel was only deemed worthy of a place on the bench after suffering from a stomach bug.

But both players are back to full fitness as the Swans aim to bounce back in Saturday's evening kick-off, knowing victory would move them back to within one point of the Canaries.

Fit-again skipper Garry Monk (knee) returned at Deepdale to make his first start at the centre of defence in 11 weeks, while on-loan striker Tamas Priskin was handed a 63rd-minute debut following his loan arrival from Ipswich.

Tom Butler (thigh) played his first match in a year for City's reserves in midweek but is unlikely to be considered for this weekend, while the likes of fringe players Leon Britton, Craig Beattie, Andrea Orlandi and Cedric van der Gun all got valuable match practice under their belts in the clash.

Norwich midfielder Wes Hoolahan is a doubt.

The former Blackpool man was replaced midway through the second half of last weekend's 6-0 thrashing of 10-man Scunthorpe with a hamstring injury and he has not trained all week.

Manager Paul Lambert has a selection quandary in attack after Simeon Jackson came off the bench to score a 15-minute hat-trick last week.

However, the Canadian may still find himself among the replacements as captain Grant Holt - who also scored three times - may be partnered again by on-loan Liverpool youngster Dani Pacheco.

Aaron Wilbraham will play no further part in the Canaries' push for promotion after being ruled out with a back injury while fellow striker Chris Martin is close to a return after two months out with a hamstring injury.
