Steve Cooper has named an unchanged starting line-up for this evening’s clash with Sheffield Wednesday.

The Swansea City head coach keeps faith with the same XI that started the morale-boosting 3-0 win over Millwall at the weekend.

The only change in the entire matchday squad sees Kieron Freeman come onto the bench in place of Ben Cabango, who misses out due to a breach of Covid-19 regulations.

Freddie Woodman is in goal, behind a back four made up of centre-half Ryan Bennett and Marc Guehi, and full-backs Kyle Naughton and Ryan Manning.

Skipper Matt Grimes again links up with Jay Fulton and Conor Hourihane in the middle of the park, with Jamal Lowe and Wayne Routledge operating out wide.

Andre Ayew will again lead the line for the Swans.

Sheffield Wednesday: Keiren Westwood, Liam Palmer, Sam Hutchinson, Joey Pelupessy, Barry Bannan (captain), Adam Reach, Julian Borner, Tom Lees, Josh Windass, Jordan Rhodes, Liam Shaw.

Substitutes: Joe Wildsmith, Callum Paterson, Kadeem Harris, Matt Penney, Andre Green, Osaze Urhoghide, Alex Hunt, Izzy Brown, Elias Kachunga.
