Forest goalkeeper Lee Camp and midfielder Guy Moussi will be fit.

Both players were substituted against Crystal Palace on the final day of the regular season after suffering minor knocks at Selhurst Park.

"We took them off purely as a precautionary measure and they will be fine for the game on Thursday," said Reds boss Billy Davies.

Defender Joel Lynch and forwards Robert Earnshaw, Robbie Findley and Nathan Tyson were rested against Palace and will come back into the squad.

Defender Julian Bennett, midfielders Paul McKenna and Radoslaw Majewski as well as strikers David McGoldrick, Dele Adebola and Garath McCleary are available for recalls after starting as substitutes at the weekend.

Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has a full-strength squad at his disposal.

Rodgers has a luxury of riches to select from with no injury of suspension problems, leaving him with just a couple of welcome selection dilemmas.

The biggest of those comes at the heart of defence as skipper Garry Monk and vice-captain Alan Tate likely battle it out to start alongside Ashley Williams.

Monk missed the penultimate match of the season at Millwall through illness, with Swans triumphing 2-0 at The Den, and then subsequently started the final day 4-0 romp over Sheffield United on the bench, with Tate pushing his claims for the nod at the City Ground.

Rodgers must also decide who to go with in the middle of midfield in his 4-5-1 system, with Stephen Dobbie - a play-off winner at Blackpool last season - Joe Allen, Leon Britton, Darren Pratley and Mark Gower all competing for three slots.

Star names Scott Sinclair and Nathan Dyer are set to start on either flank, supporting on-loan Chelsea striker Fabio Borini in attack.
