Swansea will be without right-back Angel Rangel for their clash with Barnsley.

Despite his groin injury not being as bad as first feared, the Spaniard, who limped our of last week`s 1-0 defeat at Bristol City after seven minutes, will be unavailable.

Rangel`s injury means returning Albert Serran will deputise after replacing the 27-year-old against the Robins.

Manager Paulo Sousa will have striker Lee Trundle back in the ranks, though, after the 33-year-old was ineligible for the clash with his parent club at Ashton Gate.

Federico Bessone (knee), Ferrie Bodde (calf) and Jordi Lopez (ankle) remain on the sidelines.

The Swans will be desperate to bounce back from their defeat against City as they look to cement their play-off position.

Barnsley manager Mark Robins is hoping to hand teenage pair Reuben Noble-Lazarus and Jamil Adam rare first-team appearances.

Noble-Lazarus, 16, became the youngest player to appear in a Football League match last season when he appeared as a substitute for the Tykes in a 3-0 defeat to Ipswich in March, aged just 15 years and 45 days.

He has made one substitute appearance this time around, as has Adam, 18, who stepped off the bench for the last 10 minutes in a 1-0 defeat at Reading in January.

Striker Daniel Bogdanovic remains sidelined with a hamstring strain and midfielder Anderson De Silva is struggling with a thigh problem.

Defenders Darren Moore (hamstring) and Bobby Hassell (abdomen) were both included in the squad last week - the latter played the full 90 minutes - while Carl Dickinson, on loan from Stoke, could soon return to contention at Oakwell following a knee injury.
