Jake Bidwell West Brom home 2

Jake Bidwell returns to the Swansea City starting line-up as Russell Martin makes one change for the clash with Peterborough United.

Bidwell starts as the left-sided wing-back, taking the place of Joel Latibeaudiere in the sole alteration from the defeat at Birmingham.

Midfielder Flynn Downes is fit enough for a place on the bench after missing the St Andrew's fixture with a tight hamstring.

Ben Hamer continues in goal, behind a three-man defence of Ryan Bennett, Kyle Naughton and Ryan Manning.

Bidwell and Ethan Laird are the wing-backs, with skipper Matt Grimes being joined by Korey Smith in a deep midfield role.

Jamie Paterson and Olivier Ntcham will provide support to striker and top scorer Joel Piroe.

The visitors include former Swans keeper David Cornell in their starting line-up.
