Swansea City boss Graham Potter has made four changes to his starting line-up for today's FA Cup fourth-round clash with Gillingham.

As expected, Cameron Carter-Vickers comes into the heart of defence alongside Mike van der Hoorn following Joe Rodon's foot injury.

Kyle Naughton misses out with a knee problem so Connor Roberts moves to right back as Declan John starts on the left side of the back four.

Barrie McKay makes his first start since the defeat at Hull with Wayne Routledge sidelined by a calf complaint, while Courtney Baker-Richardson starts up front as Oli McBurnie drops into a deeper role.

Nathan Dyer drops to the bench, while Cian Harries is named among the substitutes as defensive cover.

Swansea City: Erwin Mulder; Connor Roberts, Mike van der Hoorn, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Declan John; Leroy Fer (captain), Matt Grimes; Barrie McKay, Bersant Celina, Oli McBurnie; Courtney Baker-Richardson.

Subs: Kristoffer Nordfeldt, Cian Harries, Jay Fulton, Daniel James, Jefferson Montero, Nathan Dyer, George Byers.

Gillingham: Tomas Holy, Luke O'Neill, Bradley Garmston, Max Ehmer, Gabriel Zakuani (captain), Tom Eaves, Regan Charles-Cook, Elliot List, Josh Rees, Mark Byrne, Connor Ogilvie.

Subs: Brandon Hanlan, Dean Parrett, Barry Fuller, Josh Parker, Darren Oldaker, Aaron Simpson, Tom Hadler.
