Tony Pulis takes his team to the Liberty Stadium following Thursday night's 2-1 Europa League success over Besiktas, while the Welsh side are yet to concede at home this season
Rangel, Williams, Monk, Taylor
Dyer, Allen, Britton, Routledge
Huth, Shawcross, Woodgate, Wilson
Delap, Whelan, Palacios, Pennant
Leon Britton will be hoping to play despite suffering from a back injury, with Mark Gower likely to deputise if Britton is unavailable. Swansea's record signing Danny Graham is likely to return to the starting XI after recovering from injury.
Matty Etherington is a doubt for this game after limping out of Stoke's 2-1 win over Besiktas on Thursday night with a dead leg. Tony Pulis will be without Kenwyne Jones who has a hamstring problem, and Danny Higginbotham is still sidelined with a serious knee injury.
