Conor Hourihane Training

Conor Hourihane makes his Swansea City debut as Steve Cooper makes seven changes for Swansea City’s FA Cup clash with Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder sealed a loan move from Aston Villa earlier in the week and he comes straight into the side for the fourth-round tie.

Ryan Bennett also starts after returning from injury, with Joel Latibeaudiere, Wayne Routledge, Liam Cullen, Yan Dhanda and Ryan Manning the other changes from the win at Barnsley.

Freddie Woodman, Marc Guehi, captain Matt Grimes and Connor Roberts all retain their places from victory at Oakwell.

Woodman is in goal, with Bennett, Latibueadiere and Guehi making up a three-man defence.

Roberts and Manning occupy the wing-back slots, with Hourihane slotting in alongside Grimes and Dhanda in the middle of the park.

Routledge and Cullen are paired together in attack.

Ben Hamer is cup-tied, while the game comes too soon for fellow new arrival Jordan Morris.
