John's in contention

Transfer-deadline day signing Declan John has handed boss Graham Potter a selection boost.

John, who arrived at the Liberty last Thursday from Rangers in a permanent deal, missed the 1-0 win over Preston due to a minor back problem.

But the left-back has now given himself a big chance of being involved in Friday night's Championship clash at Birmingham City after taking part in full training today.

Wales international John boosts Potter's options at left-back, which include Martin Olsson and Matt Grimes, who has been utilised as cover in the position during pre-season and the opening-day win at Sheffield United.
