Swansea City head coach Steve Cooper has named an unchanged side for tonight's key clash with Reading.

The Swans, who need a win to give themselves a chance of securing a play-off berth, go with the same side that started the weekend win over Bristol City.

That means Erwin Mulder starts in goal, with Ben Cabango, Mike van der Hoorn and Marc Guehi making up a back three.

Connor Roberts - who makes his 100th Swans appearance - and Jake Bidwell continue in the wing-back roles in which they have impressed recently, while Jay Fulton and captain Matt Grimes team up in midfield.

Conor Gallagher will operate ahead of them, with he and Andre Ayew looking to provide support for striker Rhian Brewster.

Reading: Rafael Cabral, Chris Gunter, Michael Morrison, Matt Miazga, Liam Moore (captain), Andy Rinomhota, John Swift, Yakou Meite, Michael Olise, Omar Richards, George Puscas.

Substitutes: Sam Walker, Jordan Obita, Gareth McCleary, Lucas Boye, Felipe Araruna, Tyler Blackett, Ayub Masika, Charlie Adam, Gabriel Osho.

Swansea City: Erwin Mulder; Ben Cabango, Mike van der Hoorn, Marc Guehi; Connor Roberts, Jay Fulton, Matt Grimes (captain), Jake Bidwell; Conor Gallagher, Andre Ayew; Rhian Brewster.

Substitutes: Josh Gould, Tivonge Rushesha, Yan Dhanda, Bersant Celina, Nathan Dyer, Wayne Routledge, Aldo Kalulu, Jordon Garrick, Liam Cullen.
