Two changes for Robins clash

25th August
First team

Swansea City have made two changes to their starting side for today’s Championship clash with Bristol City.

Joel Asoro and Tom Carroll are both recalled having begun on the bench in the midweek draw with Leeds United.

Asoro replaces Kyle Naughton, who drops to the bench, which means Connor Roberts is likely to move back into his more familiar right-back berth having started in a wide midfield role against Leeds.

And Carroll returns in central midfield in place of skipper Leroy Fer, who begins among the substitutes as he continues to build match fitness after a long-term injury lay-off.

Erwin Mulder is once again in goal in the continued absence of Kristoffer Nordfeldt.

There is a place among the substitutes for Courtney Baker-Richardson.

The 22-year-old striker has never previously featured in the matchday squad for a league game since arriving from non-league Leamington in the summer of 2017.


Swans: Erwin Mulder, Connor Roberts, Joe Rodon, Mike van der Hoorn (capt), Martin Olsson, Jay Fulton, Tom Carroll, Joel Asoro, Bersant Celina, Barrie McKay, Oli McBurnie.

Subs: Steven Benda, Kyle Naughton, Courtney Baker-Richardson, Jefferson Montero, Matt Grimes, Leroy Fer, Daniel James.

Bristol City: Niki Maenpaa, Jack Hunt, Adam Webster, Tomas Kalas, Lloyd Kelly, Josh Brownhill, Marley Watkins, Marlon Pack (capt), Niclas Eliasson, Matty Taylor, Andreas Weimann.

Subs: Max O’Leary, Eros Pisano, Jay Dasilva, Nathan Baker, Callum O’Dowda, Liam Walsh, Jamie Paterson.
