PRE TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT
Blackburn have won their last three, the Swans have lost their last two. It looks like Josh Key is out for the Swans. Ben Cabango returns. Rovers have problems as well. Although Harry Leonard looks likely to come back into the Rovers match day squad, Jon Dahl Tomasson remains without a number of senior figures. Sam Gallagher is still injured, Aynsley Pears is out, as are Sam Barnes, Ryan Hedges and Lewis Travis,
The Swans have Nathan Wood, Joe Allen, Azeem Abdulai and Josh Ginnelly out long term. As mentioned Key is a doubt and Mykola Kukharevych missed Tuesday nights game against Watford with a knee injury.
Jon Dahl Tomasson: "Dom is out which is a blow for the team," Tomasson said. "He can play with pain and he'll do that for the club and the fans but he can't play injured. We are disappointed, it's a position where we had experience with Dom but now it's a position where we are stretched because Ayala went away. Ashley Phillips went to Tottenham and we only got James in. We're not totally full, shall we say that. I am using Tom (Atcheson), at the minute. He is sitting on the bench, a great lad and a lot of potential but he's not ready for this level. Dom will be out for a while, I won't say weeks because I don't know how long it will be. We will have to wait and see. Hopefully it will not be that long but it will not be next week”
