Kyle Naughton claps fans

Kyle Naughton is set to make his 250th Swansea City appearance, while Russell Martin makes two changes to the starting line-up for the meeting with Birmingham City.

Veteran defender Naughton brings up his landmark against the Blues and will line up in a back three alongside Ben Cabango and Finley Burns, with Andy Fisher continuing in goal.

Burns is one of the pair of alterations from the midweek win at Peterborough, replacing Korey Smith, while Olivier Ntcham is the other change as he takes the place of the injured Flynn Downes to sit alongside skipper Matt Grimes in the middle of the park.

Cyrus Christie and Hannes Wolf are the right and left wing-backs respectively, while in-form duo Joel Piroe and Michael Obafemi are supported by Jamie Patterson in the final third.

Academy product Cameron Congreve is once again named among the substitutes, and there is also a space on the bench for Joel Latibeaudiere.

Swansea City: Andy Fisher; Ben Cabango, Kyle Naughton, Finley Burns; Cyrus Christie, Matt Grimes (captain), Olivier Ntcham, Hannes Wolf; Jamie Paterson, Joel Piroe, Michael Obafemi.

Substitutes: Ben Hamer, Jay Fulton, Korey Smith, Kyle Joseph, Nathanael Ogbeta, Joel Latibeaudiere, Cameron Congreve.
