Ashley Williams misses out through suspension while manager Michael Laudrup may choose to rest Chico Flores with the busy festive period approaching.

Leon Britton could return in midfield from a knee injury, but goalkeeper Michel Vorm is unlikely to be rushed back from his groin injury and Pablo Hernandez is still struggling with a thigh injury.

Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray will make a series of late checks before naming his side.

Full-back George Friend has returned to training after a hamstring tear, while central defender Jonathan Woodgate and midfielder Faris Haroun are feeling the after-effects of Saturday's 3-2 npower Championship victory at Peterborough, in which both made comebacks from calf problems.

All three players will travel to South Wales and be assessed there before Mowbray makes a final decision.

However, midfielder Josh McEachran, 19, will miss out as he is ineligible under the terms of his loan agreement with parent club Chelsea.

Julio Arca (toe surgery), Rhys Williams (ankle ligaments), Muzzy Carayol and Curtis Main (both knee) are closing in on returns, but the game will come too soon for all four.

Swansea (from): Bartley, Flores, Britton, Lita, Michu, Graham, Dyer, Cornell, Routledge, Monk, Shechter, Moore, De Guzman, Tiendalli, Rangel, Ki, Tremmel, Agustien, Gower, Richards, Davies.
