Team news | Birmingham City v Swansea City

2nd April 2021
First team
Jamal Lowe

Swansea City make two changes to the starting XI for tonight's Championship clash with Birmingham City at St Andrew's.

From the team that started against Cardiff City, Jamal Lowe, who scored on his international debut for Jamaica last week, returns to the attacking line in place of Morgan Whittaker.

The other change sees Korey Smith come back into the fold with Conor Hourihane, who is available after overcoming a nerve problem which saw him withdrawn early against the Bluebirds, on the bench.

Freddie Woodman is between the sticks with Ryan Bennett, Marc Guehi and Kyle Naughton in front of him. Connor Roberts and Jake Bidwell will offer support on the flanks while Smith links up with captain Matt Grimes and Jay Fulton in midfield.

Up front, Lowe partners top scorer Andre Ayew as the Swans look to return to winning ways following two defeats before the international break.

Birmingham City: Neil Etheridge, Maxime Colin, Kristian Pedersen, Marc Roberts, Luks Jutkiewicz, Harlee Dean (capt), Jonathan Leko, Gary Gardner, Ivan Sunjic, Alen Halilovic, Steve Seddon.

Subs: Andres Prieto, George Friend, Scott Hogan, Jeremie Bela, Sam Cosgrove, Riley McGree, Mikel San Jose, Jon Toral, Rakeem Harper.
