Boro midfielder Barry Robson remains a doubt for the trip to face the Swans.

The Scotland international missed Tuesday night's 2-0 win at Scunthorpe with a thigh muscle injury and is battling for to be fit.

Former Celtic team-mate Stephen McManus is out with ankle ligament damage which could sideline him for some time.

However, skipper Gary O'Neil returned from a groin problem at Glanford Park and came through unscathed.

Jonathan Franks (herniated disc), Willo Flood (knee), Rhys Williams (pelvis) and Matt Kilgallon (back) remain on the casualty list.

Swansea have no fresh injury concerns but boss Brendan Rodgers is boosted by the return from suspension of Darren Pratley.

The hosts, though, will be without loanee Marvin Emnes. The Dutchman's spell at the Liberty Stadium is officially set to end on Sunday and because he is ineligible to face his parent club, Emnes could have played his last game for the Swans.
