Swansea City head coach Russell Martin has named an unchanged side for tonight’s Championship clash with Coventry City.

The Swans boss sticks with exactly the same 18 that saw off Peterborough United at the Stadium at the weekend.

That means Ben Hamer continues in goal, behind a three-man backline of Ryan Bennett, Kyle Naughton and Ryan Manning.

Ethan Laird and Jake Bidwell are the wing-backs, with skipper Matt Grimes partnering Korey Smith in midfield.

Olivier Ntcham and Jamie Paterson will provide support to striker Joel Piroe in the final third.

The hosts, meanwhile, include former Swans striker Viktor Gyokeres in their starting line-up.

Coventry City: Simon Moore, Jake Clarke-Salter, Kyle McFadzean (captain), Jamie Allen, Callum O'Hare, Dominic Hyam, Viktor Gyokeres, Ian Maatsen, Fankaty Dabo, Matty Godden, Gustavo Hamer.

Substitutes: Ben Wilson, Michael Rose, Liam Kelly, Jodi Jones, Ben Sheaf, Tyler Walker, Todd Kane.
