Swansea look set to welcome Andrea Orlandi back into their starting line-up for the visit of Coventry.

The midfielder was only deemed fit enough for a place on the bench in the 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough on Saturday following a two game lay-off with a thigh injury.

Boss Paulo Sousa may be able to call upon new signing Shefki Kuqi once the paperwork on his 18-month deal has been cleared by the Football League.

Cedric van der Gun was expected to make his return in the weekend fixture but he continues to be hampered with a niggling hamstring problem so is a doubt.

Defender Albert Serran is expected to be out of action for at least another seven weeks with a hamstring injury of his own.

Ashley Williams came back into the side against Boro and is expected to keep his place in the heart of defence alongside skipper Garry Monk with Angel Rangel having to settle for a place on the bench.

Coventry have a slight injury concern over Freddy Eastwood.

The striker has picked up a knee injury but should be fit enough to take his place in the squad at the Liberty Stadium.

However, boss Chris Coleman has been hit by the news that midfielder Isaac Osbourne, who has been out of action since November, has been ruled out for the season after undergoing surgery on his knee on Sunday.

Defender Ben Turner is due to return to first-team training on Thursday following a niggling ankle injury and is not due to have an operation until the end of the season.

The centre-half recently had a cortisone injection to see him through to the summer when an operation will remove some floating bone.

Fellow defender Marcus Hall is set to return for the Sky Blues within a week.
