Swansea captain Garry Monk is again a doubt for the visit of Roberto Martinez's Latics.

The defender missed Monday's defeat at Manchester City due to a foot problem, but played 90 minutes for the reserves on Wednesday. Manager Brendan Rodgers is set to see whether Monk has any adverse reaction to that run-out before making a final decision.

Left-back Neil Taylor is available again after completing the three-match suspension he received for his red card in the play-off semi-final first leg at Nottingham Forest.

Wigan are likely to be without defender Steve Gohouri in south Wales as he continues his recovery from a calf problem.

Martinez may be tempted to start with striker Hugo Rodallega despite admitting he is not yet 100% fit after Copa America duty with Colombia, while Antolin Alcaraz, who reached the final with Paraguay, could come into contention for a place in the squad.

James McCarthy had an injection in his ankle to enable him to play in last week's draw with Norwich and should be available again but new signing Nouha Dicko is not yet being considered for the first team.

Swansea (from): Vorm, Williams, Taylor, Caulker, Tate, Bodde, Britton, Orlandi, Beattie, Graham, Sinclair, Dyer, Cornell, Dobbie, Routledge, Monk, Lita, Moore, Moreira, Rangel, Allen, Agustien, Gower, Butler, Richards.

Wigan (from): Al Habsi, Caldwell, Boyce, Figueroa, Alcaraz, Watson, Diame, Rodallega, Moses, McCarthy, Sammon, McArthur, Gomez, Di Santo, McManaman, Lopez, Stam, Thomas, Kirkland, Jones, Nicholls, Pollitt.
