Russell Martin says Jamie Paterson will be fit for Swansea City’s Championship clash with Bournemouth on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

The midfielder, who has nine goals and nine assists to his name in his maiden Swans campaign, missed out on the weekend draw with Middlesbrough with a minor knock.

But head coach Martin is confident Paterson will be in contention for the promotion-chasing Cherries.

“Jamie will be involved on Tuesday,” he said.

“With Flynn Downes we managed things really well so he could return and be involved properly rather than doing bits and pieces here and there.

“With Pato it is the same, we could have put him in for a bit on the weekend and risked him, but we would much rather have him right and ready to play full games and being available.

“He was not quite right for Middlesbrough, but he will be ready for Tuesday.”
