Swansea winger Nathan Dyer is "raring to go" ahead of Friday's Barclays Premier League clash with Newcastle after being given a short break by manager Brendan Rodgers.

Dyer, 24, returned from a three-week suspension against Tottenham last week having received a red card in the win at Wigan at the start of March.

As a result of his suspension manager Rodgers chose to allow the player a short break, and Dyer said: "It has been tough watching the games and not being involved but we have been doing well, we had two wins out of those three games and I have been proud of the boys and how they've been playing and it has been really good."
