Midfielder Leon Britton is the major fitness concern for Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers.

Britton is still struggling with the back complaint that saw him withdrawn early against Chelsea last weekend but Rodgers is hopeful his playmaker will be available.

Striker Danny Graham could come back into the starting line-up in place of Leroy Lita but midfielder Ferrie Bodde is set to undergo yet another operation in the latest setback to his recovery from a series of knee injuries.

Garry Monk and Ashley Williams are again the only fit centre-halves with Alan Tate (broken leg), Steven Caulker (knee) and Kemy Agustien (hamstring) all sidelined.

Stoke winger Matthew Etherington will undergo a fitness test ahead of the Potters' trip to Wales.

Etherington limped out of Thursday night's 2-1 Europa League Group E victory over Besiktas with a dead leg.

Defender Jonathan Woodgate is available again having missed that game because he is not part of Stoke's squad for Europe, and the rested Asmir Begovic is set to return in goal in place Thomas Sorensen.

Salif Diao (fractured cheekbone) is another injury doubt, while Kenwyne Jones (hamstring) is not expected to make his comeback until after the international break.

Swansea (from): Vorm, Williams, Taylor, Britton, Graham, Sinclair, Dyer, Dobbie, Routledge, Monk, Lita, Moore, Bessone, Moreira, Rangel, Allen, Tremmel, Gower, Richards, Lucas.

Stoke (from): Begovic, Wilson, Huth, Shawcross, Upson, Wilkinson, Woodgate, Whelan, Whitehead, Etherington, Walters, Sorensen, Shotton, Arismendi, Pennant, Delap, Crouch, Palacios, Jerome, Nash.
