Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has no new injury or suspension problems as his side look to secure a play-off place with a home win.

If the Swans can secure their 14th league win of the season at the Liberty Stadium and play-off rivals Nottingham Forest, Leeds and Burnley all fail to win, Rodgers' side will be assured of a top-six finish with two games to go.

Midfielder Joe Allen, an unused substitute in Saturday's goalless draw at Portsmouth, is pushing for a return to the starting line-up following a thigh strain, while Rodgers opted for Alan Tate instead of Neil Taylor at full-back on Saturday.

Strikers Stephen Dobbie, Luke Moore and Craig Beattie are all pushing for recalls to the starting line-up.

Ipswich boss Paul Jewell looks set to ring the changes.

Jewell could only watch on in horror as the Tractor Boys fell to a 5-1 home defeat at the hands of arch-rivals Norwich on Thursday night.

And that performance could prompt the former Wigan boss to alter things, with the likes of Andy Drury and Colin Healy pushing for starting berths.

Lee Martin will again be unavailable as he serves the second game of a three-match suspension, but Mark Kennedy could return to the fold despite struggling with an ongoing hamstring problem.
