Swansea manager Paulo Sousa could be boosted by the return of winger David Cotterill ahead of the home clash with Sheffield Wednesday.

Cotterill missed the midweek win over Watford after failing a late fitness test on a hamstring problem but could be ready to take a place in the squad this weekend

If the 22-year-old doesn't make it in time, Cedric van der Gun is likely to retain his place.

Sousa will once again be without the suspended Gorka Pintado, who is serving the final game of a four-match ban.

Garry Monk and Fede Bessone are both still out with calf injuries and Andrea Orlandi and Albert Serran are struggling to overcome their respective hamstring troubles.

Jordi Lopez's ankle problem is still proving problematic, while Ferrie Bodde and Joe Allen (both knee) remain sidelined.

Striker Marcus Tudgay will return to the Wednesday squad after missing the midweek defeat at West Brom through illness.

Owls manager Alan Irvine must decide whether to recall Tudgay to his starting line-up or retain Leon Clarke - two-goal hero in last weekend's win over Leicester - alongside on-loan Luke Varney.

Irvine has a near full-strength squad at his disposal, with only Lewis Buxton missing due to a hamstring injury.

Striker Francis Jeffers made his first appearance since January when stepping off the bench late on at West Brom and could feature again, while Frank Simek, Tom Soares, Michael Gray, Richard Hinds and Sean McAllister are all pushing for recalls.

The Owls, third from bottom, face the second of three successive away fixtures in the Championship as they bid to avoid relegation.
