Tired legs but no new injuries for Swansea City ahead of Luton

Swansea City head coach Steve Cooper has no new injury worries ahead of Saturday’s clash with Luton Town.

The Swans return to the Liberty on the back of a testing week following long journeys and short turnarounds at Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough.

But, other than midfielders Morgan Gibbs-White and George Byers, the trips to the East Midlands and Teesside have not led to any issues other than the expected tired legs.

“Like every team, there'll be tired legs and fatigue all over the place. We'll be no different,” said the Swansea boss.

"What you've got to do is maximise the little time that you get between games, so we're not making too many early decisions on team selection or player fitness.

“We try to give the best opportunity we can to everybody to be as ready as they can.

“If you keep rolling out the same players for every game, bar maybe in an exceptional circumstance, players will break. There's no doubt about that, there'll be warning signs there through all of the monitoring that goes on now.

"It's a completely different landscape in terms of scheduling that we've ever been though, so I think using the squad is really important."
