Ryan Bennett makes his Swansea City debut in the solitary change for tonight’s meeting with Coventry City.

The defender signed for the Swans from Wolves on deadline day, and he comes into the side at the expense of Kyle Naughton, who drops to the bench.

Ryan Manning could also make his debut, with the former QPR wing-back and midfielder among the substitutes at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium.

Freddie Woodman continues in goal following his return against Huddersfield, with Bennett joining Ben Cabango and Marc Guehi in a three-man Swansea defence.

Connor Roberts and Jake Bidwell occupy the flanks, with skipper Matt Grimes and Korey Smith again paired together in midfield.

Andre Ayew, Jamal Lowe and Viktor Gyokeres will look to combine in the final third for what is the first senior meeting between these two clubs in nearly a decade.
