Head coach Michael Duff is confident his Swansea City side will remain resolute despite heading to Ipswich with a number of players absent.

Charlie Patino is suspended following his red card against Sunderland.

Josh Key and Mykola Kuharevich remain sidelined with knocks, while Joe Allen, Josh Ginnelly, Nathan Wood and Azeem Abdulai are longer-term absentees.

So Duff will not have any players back from injury to bolster his squad at Portman Road, but has been impressed by how his squad have backed up results and performances.

"We are a bit short of numbers with Charlie suspended, and a couple have knocks so we will need to see where they are at," said the Swans boss.

"It’s all hands to the pump, and everyone who has been called upon has put their hands up and performed and we want to take that forward into this weekend.

"No-one is coming back who missed out last week so we will need to stay as resolute as we have been."
