Pep Clotet’s men beat Barnsley last time out thanks to goals from striker duo Lukas Jutkiewicz and summer signing Alvaro Gimenez, the latter hopeful of building on a promising start in a royal blue shirt.

Goal hero Jutkiewicz, meanwhile, is a fitness doubt having sustained an ankle knock against the Tykes. Juke is such a key man as every Blues supporter knows and has scored two of the club’s four goals this season.

Defender Maxime Colin is back in contention after shaking off a strain which kept him out of last week’s victory, while Jefferson Montero is ineligible to face his parent club. Jonathan Grounds, Jacques Maghoma and Maikel Kieftenbeld are all still out.

Swansea City entertain Birmingham City this bank holiday lunchtime looking to extend their superb start to the Championship season.

Steve Cooper’s men have got off to a flyer, with three wins and a draw to their name so far this campaign.

Despite losing key players in the summer, Cooper’s team have gelled superbly and are among the early pacesetters in the division.

Leeds United’s convincing win over Stoke City keeps them top, but a win against the Blues would see Swansea go level on points with the title favourites.

The Blues are overseen by former Swansea coach Pep Clotet, who has enjoyed a mix start to his St Andrew’s tenure.
