Swansea will field a makeshift line-up against Stoke City on Sunday as injuries have swept through the squad of the Premier League new boys.
Leon Britton was substituted at half-time of their 4-1 loss to Chelsea in London last weekend, citing a recurring back injury, and it will likely keep him out of the clash at Liberty Stadium.
Britton will join fellow holding midfielder Kemy Agustien on the outer, with the latter suffering a hamstring injury against Arsenal, while striker Craig Beattie (ankle) will also miss the clash.
Defenders Steven Caulker (knee) and Alan Tate (leg) are also unavailable, creating a selection headache for manager Brendan Rodgers.
Stoke’s squad depth will also be tested, as they look to continue their winning ways after a midweek Europa League victory.
Tony Pulis’ men were thrashed by Sunderland the last time they had to back up from a midweek European fixture.
That came after a visit to Ukraine, however, while Thursday’s 2-1 win over Besiktas took place on home soil at Britannia Stadium.
Nevertheless, a trip to Wales will test the endurance of the Potters, particularly given Pulis will have to make-do without the injured Ricardo Fuller, Mamady Sidibe, Kenwyne Jones and Danny Higginbotham.
Swansea broke their Premier League goal-scoring duck in their last home game, a 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion, while Stoke have lost just once on the road this term – the 4-0 reverse against Sunderland.
