Team news | Coventry City v Swansea City

First team
Huddersfield away Olivier Ntcham

Olivier Ntcham returns to the Swansea City starting line-up in the solitary change for this afternoon's meeting with Coventry City.

The Cameroon international is preferred to Luke Cundle in the only alteration from the defeat to Norwich, with the rest of the matchday squad unchanged.

That means striker Michael Obafemi misses out again as he recovers from a knock picked up on international duty.

Steven Benda continues in goal, with Kyle Naughton, Nathan Wood, Ben Cabango and Joel Latibeaudiere making up the back four ahead of him.

Captain Matt Grimes and Jay Fulton are paired together in midfield, with a trio of Ntcham, Jamie Paterson and Ryan Manning operating ahead of them.

Joel Piroe will once again lead the line against a Coventry squad featuring a trio of former Swans.

Jake Bidwell and Viktor Gyokeres start for the Sky Blues, while Kasey Palmer is among the substitutes.

Coventry City: Ben Wilson, Jonathan Panzo, Callum Doyle, Michael Rose, Jamie Allen (captain), Callum O'Hare, Ben Sheaf, Viktor Gyokeres, Jake Bidwell, Jack Burroughs, Gustavo Hamer.

Substitutes: Simon Moore, Liam Kelly, Martyn Waghorn, Todd Kane, Fankaty Dabo, Fabio Tavares, Kasey Palmer.

Swansea City: Steven Benda; Kyle Naughton, Nathan Wood, Ben Cabango, Joel Latibeaudiere; Jay Fulton, Matt Grimes (captain); Jamie Paterson, Olivier Ntcham, Ryan Manning; Joel Piroe.

Substitutes: Andy Fisher, Harry Darling, Joe Allen, Luke Cundle, Liam Cullen, Armstrong Oko-Flex, Ollie Cooper.
