George Byers and Jordon Garrick are back in contention for Swansea City’s Boxing Day clash with Queens Park Rangers.

Byers is back to fitness after a troublesome groin injury, while Garrick has also got over a recent niggle and they are both available to face the Rs at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

But Kyle Naughton remains a doubt with the side strain that saw him miss the weekend win over Barnsley.

“George is back training with us, and he has played a couple of under-23 games,” said head coach Steve Cooper.

“He and Jordon are available for the game on Boxing Day.

“Kyle is touch and go, he has an oblique injury, which is a strange injury for a football. It’s more of a cricketing injury really. It’s nothing too serious though.”

Cooper also confirmed Morgan Gibbs-White is nearing a return from his fractured foot.

“He is close to being back on the grass with us,” he added.

“Another three or four days and he will be with us.”
