Swansea could welcome back skipper Garry Monk for the visit of Ipswich.

Monk returned from a calf injury against West Brom and despite missing the last two games, he could be fit to return as the Swans look to get back on track following the 5-1 defeat at Blackpool on Tuesday.

Midfielder Andrea Orlandi came on as a second-half substitute in midweek following a hamstring injury and is pushing for a place in Paulo Sousa's starting line-up.

Fellow midfielder Joe Allen (knee) is back in training and could be named in the matchday squad.

However Albert Serran (hamstring), Ferrie Bodde (calf) and Federico Bessone (knee) all remain on the sidelines.

On-loan Burnley defender David Edgar was an unused substitute at Bloomfield Road but could make his debut for the Swans.

Ipswich will be without striker Connor Wickham.

The 16-year-old is on international duty with the England Under-17 squad and will be missing from the Town bench at the Liberty Stadium.

Manager Roy Keane hinted at making several changes following the disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Plymouth in midweek so the likes of Owen Garvan, David Healy, Grant Leadbitter and Jaime Peters will all be hoping to win recalls to the starting XI.

Keane`s injury list has cleared up in recent weeks and he travels with just Richard Wright and Luciano Civelli left at home.

Wright is close to a return to the squad as he builds up his recovery from a knee injury sustained in November while winger Civelli will not be back in action until September as he struggles to recover from his own serious knee injury.
