Home » EPL, Latest » Match Preview: Sunderland vs Swansea

Sunderland defenders Wes Brown and Titus Bramble could return to the squad after resuming training.

Brown has missed the last three games with a groin injury, while Bramble has been sidelined since suffering Achilles and calf problems during the 1-1 draw with Everton on Boxing Day.

However, central defender Matt Kilgallon and midfielder Jack Colback (both ankle) are still out, and while striker Fraizer Campbell travelled to Chelsea last week after recovering from a second serious knee injury, he is still short of match fitness.

Loan signing Josh McEachran is set to go straight into the Swansea squad.

The teenage Chelsea midfielder arrived in south Wales on Monday and could be handed an immediate chance to impress, while fellow midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson is pushing for a start after an excellent second-half performance in the win over Arsenal.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has no new injury worries, but the game comes too soon for long-term absentee Alan Tate (broken leg) who made a second appearance for the reserves in midweek.

Sunderland (from): Mignolet, Westwood, Bardsley, O’Shea, Brown, Bramble, Turner, Cattermole, Richardson, Gardner, Vaughan, Larsson, Elmohamady, McClean, Meyler, Sessegnon, Bendtner, Wickham, Ji, Campbell.

Swansea (from): Vorm, Williams, Taylor, Caulker, Britton, Orlandi, Graham, Sinclair, Dyer, Dobbie, Routledge, Monk, McEachran, Lita, Moore, Bessone, Rangel, Allen, Tremmel, Agustien, Gower, Richards, Donnelly, Sigurdsson, Situ.
