Swansea will be looking to halt a run of three consecutive Premier League defeats when Reading arrive at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.
Brian McDermott’s men are also in desperate need of points, after they were denied their first Premier League win of the season last weekend by Demba Ba’s hand.
The worry for Swansea boss Micheal Laudrup will be where the goals are going to come from, having seen his side fail to find the net in their last three.
There are no new suspension worries for the Swans, while midfielder Kemy Agustien is expected to make his comeback from a leg injury.
Defenders Kyle Bartley and Neil Taylor are long-term injury concerns for Laudrup’s men, with a thigh strain and a fractured ankle respectively.
Goalkeeper Adam Federici remains sidelined with a knee problem for Reading, while midfielder Mikele Leigertwood is expected to recover from a dead leg in time to feature in some part.
Striker Jason Roberts has fully recovered from a calf problem and could make his first start of the season at the Liberty Stadium.
Prediction: Swansea 1-0 Reading
