Cameron Evans

Cameron Evans makes his Swansea City debut as one of seven changes for the FA Cup third-round clash at Stevenage.

The young defender comes into the side having previously been included in matchday squads on a handful of previous occasions.

The only players to retain their places from last weekend’s win over Watford are goalkeeper Freddie Woodman – with Steven Benda out injured – Ryan Manning, Ben Cabango and Jay Fulton.

Woodman starts in goal, with Kyle Naughton returning from a side strain to start alongside Evans and Cabango at the back.

Manning and Jordon Garrick fill the wing-back roles, with George Byers - who makes his first appearance of the season - and Fulton taking up the deep midfield positions.

Yan Dhanda is the attacking midfielder, while captain Wayne Routledge and Viktor Gyokeres start in attack.

Head coach Steve Cooper has named a strong bench, which includes in-form striker Jamal Lowe and Liam Cullen, with the latter returning having completed a period of self-isolation following a positive test for Covid-19.

Stevenage: Jamie Cumming, Luther James-Wildin, Ben Coker, Scott Cuthbert (captain), Charlie Carter, Danny Newton, Terence Vanccoten, Arthur Read, Jack Smith, Tom Pett, Chris Lines.

Substitutes: Billy Johnson, Romain Vincelot, Luke Prosser, Tyrone Marsh, Elliott List, Ross Marshall, Jack Aitchison, Luke Norris, Aramide Oteh.
