TEAM NEWS : Leicester City v Swansea City plus Yates & Mykola latest
Tuesday, 30th Jan 2024 13:18 by Swansea Independent

Tonight’s Championship game at Leicester City presents similar issues to that faced at Bournemouth last Thursday night. Very much a Premier League club in waiting with all the attributes of their first year of EPL parachute money, this is the hardest away game of the season.

Here’s the latest : Josh Ginnelly is out for the season, Sam Parker is out for a number of weeks, Josh Key the same, Jamal Lowe needs another three weeks at least to return from his injury. Ben a Cabango was back in training yesterday, however the best we can hope for is a spot on the subs bench. Yannick Bolasie left the club yesterday morning. Unless some magical wizardry is done today on Ronald’s paperwork he will sit this one out. Defender Harry Darling will return along with Carl Rushworth in goal. Josh Tymon is fit and will also start.

The big questions will be over Jerry Yates and Mykola Kukharevych, both players are in the shop window for interested clubs. Jerry is preferred as a straight sale, Mykola available for loan. If these two are not selected tonight, they have travelled, then who takes up the central forward position is open to debate. Either way it isn’t ideal. Yates inclusion or otherwise will give an insight as to his immediate future.

Leicester City are very much a club still dripping in Premier League talent.

Leicester Mercury : Enzo Maresca is set to have three Leicester City strikers to choose from against Swansea with Patson Daka on course to return to the squad. Maresca had been reduced to just one forward in Tom Cannon at the start of this month with Jamie Vardy injured and with Daka and Kelechi Iheanacho at the Africa Cup of Nations. But Vardy has since recovered and now Daka’s early elimination with Zambia will see him return to the City fold. mances at Afcon. “I watched some moments of the game. He continued in the way he was doing here. I’m very sorry for him for his international team, but I’m very happy for us because he can be back very soon. He has done very good there and hopefully he can continue with us. For Tuesday, hopefully yes (he will be involved).”

Team news will appear here at 6.45pm on the Indy.

Swans need another center-back, preferrably one with some experience, quickness, and more pace than Cabango, Darling & Wood. That's a tall order and won't come cheap. I think Watson is Swans most valuable asset at the moment, especially if he can get one or two more quality recruits through the door. Rushworth, Key, Ginnelly, Tymon, sometimes Patino, and now Ronald (pray, hope) are good examples of his quality recruiting. So unfortunate about Ginnelly since a lot of us think he could've made a difference in Swans fortunes this season if he had stayed healthy. I still don't understand why Yates hasn't performed better. Sometimes all it takes is one newcomer to provide that spark; hopefully Ronald is that player.

Swansea is in turmoil too much of the time. Stability is needed with Williams and Watson working well in harmony. If you sign potential you must show patience and care. I do not like to see Ntoe sent back to the Netherlands. It is not progression. He needs to get used to the UK game and as a place to live.
