Bradford defender Rory McArdle could be in contention after ankle trouble - the 25-year-old returned to training earlier this week. Should McArdle pass a late fitness test he is likely to face competition from the fit-again Andrew Davies, plus fellow centre-backs Michael Nelson and Carl McHugh. Forward Garry Thompson is expected to start but there will be a free berth in attack with Andy Gray ineligible.
Swansea defender Chico Flores has had to admit defeat in his battle to recover from ruptured ankle ligaments - Kyle Bartley or club captain Garry Monk will slot in alongside Ashley Williams. Gerhard Tremmel will start in goal, while Michu, Wayne Routledge and Angel Rangel will also return after being rested for the thumping defeat at Liverpool last weekend.
Top scorers (all competitions): Nahki Wells (Bradford) 18; Michu (Swansea) 18
Referee: Kevin Friend (Leicestershire).
