Routledge and Dyer start for Swans

2nd March
First team

Wayne Routledge and Nathan Dyer start for Swansea City against Bolton as Declan John and Bersant Celina drop to the bench.

Routledge featured as a second-half substitute in the defeat at Sheffield Wednesday - scoring the Swans' solitary goal in a 3-1 loss - and makes his first start following his return from a calf strain.

Dyer, meanwhile, has had a niggling hamstring problem but makes his first start since the defeat at Bristol City at the start of February.

Kyle Naughton starts at right-back, with Connor Roberts moving over to the left as John misses out.

Kristoffer Nordfeldt retains his place in goal, with Mike van der Hoorn and Cameron Carter-Vickers forming the centre-half pairing.

George Byers and Matt Grimes start in deep midfield roles, with Routledge expected to feature in a central role, flanked by Dyer and Daniel James.

Oli McBurnie continues as Swansea's lone striker.
