Bristol City caretaker manager Keith Millen will continue with Stephen Henderson in goal for their clash with Swansea.

Henderson made an impressive debut against Sheffield Wednesday, replacing the injured Dean Gerken who will be back before the end of the season after scans showed he has not fractured his collar bone as first feared, and will again be give a chance to impress.

Millen says he is confident Henderson can step in again for their important clash with the Swans.

"He was excellent in his debut," Millen told the club`s official website.

"We know how difficult the Swansea game will be. Paulo Sousa has done a good job without changing too much in terms of their formation. They don`t score many goals but I`m sure they will argue that the other team can`t score if they retain possession of the ball."

Long-term absentees Jamie McAllister (calf), James Wilson and Jamie McCombe (both knee) remain on the sidelines.

Swansea will be without striker Lee Trundle.

The 33-year-old, who is on loan at the Liberty Stadium from the Robins, has been refused permission to play at Ashton Gate.

However, Albert Serran looks set to be back in contention after returning from a foot injury while Federico Bessone (knee), Ferrie Bodde (calf) and Jordi Lopez (ankle) remain on the sidelines.

Boss Paulo Sousa will be desperate for a win as the Swans look to extend their lead over seventh-placed Blackpool.

"I want to see my team full of intensity at Bristol on Saturday," he told the club`s official website.

"It`s always been an important game at Bristol because the cities are not too far apart and it`s classed as a derby by many people."
