Russell Martin expects to rotate his Swansea City squad over the Easter weekend, but has no injury absentees ahead of meetings with Barnsley and Reading.

The Swans host the Tykes at the Stadium on Friday, before making the trip to Berkshire to face the Royals on Monday.

Midfielder Flynn Downes has returned to training after a knee issue, but head coach Martin will make a late call on his availability over the double-header.

“The squad is looking really good, and we are pretty much the same as we have been,” said the Swans boss.

“I think there will be lots of changes over the two games, but we are in a good place physically and mentally.

“We have had a good few days of preparation, we have digested last week, which was obviously a really good week for us.

“We want to carry on the momentum and positivity.

“Flynn has been training, it’s whether we use him for one game or both games and we will have a chat about that.”
