Swansea v Hull City preview

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup will give his trio of injured strikers as much time as possible to prove their fitness ahead of Monday's home date with Hull City.

Michu (ankle), Wilfried Bony (hamstring) and Alvaro Vazquez (groin) are all nursing knocks and are doubtful for the clash but, with few alternatives available, Laudrup will hope at least one of them pulls through in time to feature.

If not, the Dane may elect to again play with a 'false nine' after the tactic proved successful in the midweek win over Newcastle.

Curtis Davies is available again for Hull City's trip to South Wales.

The defender missed the midweek defeat at Arsenal through suspension and boss Steve Bruce must decide whether to recall him in place of James Chester.

Striker Matty Fryatt will also be hoping to figure for Hull having recently returned to the club following a loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday. Stephen Quinn (hamstring) and Sone Aluko (Achilles) remain on the sidelines.
