Kyle Naughton and Tom Carroll are in contention to feature for Swansea City against Birmingham on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

Defender Naughton missed the FA Cup win over Gillingham with a knee problem, while midfielder Carroll has been working his way back to full fitness following a lengthy lay-off with hip and groin problems.

But Wayne Routledge will miss out against Garry Monk's Blues, with the winger not expected to return to training until next week as he recovers from a calf strain.

"Wayne is making good progress, he will miss the game tomorrow but should be back on the pitch next week," said manager Graham Potter.

"Tom has had a good week in training, so he is in and around the squad and available for Tuesday, I think.

"Oli McBurnie is fine, there is no problem with him, and Kyle Naughton trained yesterday, we expect him to be back involved in the squad."

Joe Rodon (broken metatarsal) and Martin Olsson (Achilles) are longer-term absentees for the Swans.
