Swansea City will be aiming to secure back-to-back wins for the first time since mid-December when they travel to take on third-placed Fulham at Craven Cottage tomorrow night.
Steve Cooper’s side injected a fresh lease of life into their play-off bid following their 3-1 win over Huddersfield over the weekend, and they can now make a real statement of intent with a success over the promotion-chasing Cottagers.
The Swans have also been handed the positive news that there are no fresh injury concerns within the squad ahead of Wednesday’s clash, with Aldo Kalulu available to feature despite being forced off with tired legs against Huddersfield.
Cooper confirmed to WalesOnline that the Frenchman will be able to feature following his fine display against the Terriers, while there is also a “50/50” chance that Nathan Dyer could be involved after not featuring in the league since early December.
The Swans were also lacking the services of another wide man over the weekend as Wayne Routledge did not feature despite starting the previous match against Hull, and Cooper has revealed he will again be missing for the Fulham trip this week.

However, the Swansea boss did reveal that the 35-year-old is only battling a small injury problem and he is preparing to return to training on the grass next week, with this meaning he will also likely miss the trip to Blackburn over the weekend.
Swansea’s final remaining absentee is experienced centre-back Mike van der Hoorn who has been absent since the Charlton clash at the start of the year, and Cooper told WalesOnline that the defender is still recovering from the knee problem.
“Mike is continuing his recovery. He’s due a scan today (Monday),” Cooper said.
