Steve Cooper is weighing up changes to his Swansea City side as the relentless fixture schedule continues with Tuesday’s meeting with Stoke City.

The clash with the Potters is the fourth game in a sequence that sees the Swans play seven games in just 22 games.

Head coach Cooper’s selection has been consistent over the opening weeks of the season but - given the sheer weight of games - he acknowledges there will be a need to rotate and give different players a chance to impress in the matches ahead.

"It will be sooner rather than later,” said Cooper when asked if he would make changes against the Potter.

"It didn't really come too much into the thinking for the Bristol City game because there was an extra day of rest.

"But going into a Saturday-Tuesday, I certainly think that you really need to monitor the physical and mental status of the players.

"We've got players who are not on the pitch at the moment who are ready to go, and we need to utilise that."
