Hayden Mullins will return to the Portsmouth squad following a one-game ban, with Aston Villa loanee Jonathan Hogg most vulnerable.

Ricardo Rocha will begin a four-match ban and Hermann Hreidarsson is an injury doubt, meaning a recall for Aaron Mokoena.

Swansea's Joe Allen is expected to return after a thigh strain but manager Brendan Rodgers has no other fitness issues.

The midfielder missed last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Burnley due to a thigh strain but has travelled to the south coast with Brendan Rodgers' squad and is set to be involved.

The Fratton Park encounter is part one of a crucial Easter double header which looks certain to decide Swans' hopes of a top-two finish, ambitions which hang in the balance after losing four successive away trips.

Rodgers, his management team and the club's players made the trip to the south of England on Wednesday in order to enjoy some relaxation time which he hopes will provide the catalyst for positive results against Pompey and then at home to Ipswich on Easter Monday.
