Swansea City head into the weekend fixture against Brentford, with manager Graham Potter hoping his side can return to winning ways, following three straight defeats, that have seen the Swans drop to 13th in the Championship.
Potter though will have to do without winger Daniel James, who is undergoing a scan on a hamstring injury having pulled up in the defeat to Derby as reported on Wales Online.
So how big a blow is the loss of James for Swansea?
It’s a significant blow to their chances of winning this match.
Daniel James has one goal and three assists in 13 Championship games this term and has been quite the influence during those fixtures.
It’s a real loss to have him missing against a Brentford side that will be buoyed after their last-gasp goal to snatch a point away at West Brom on Monday night.
If I were Graham Potter I would be worried about the weekend.
It’s frustrating for them, but I think they’ll overcome it.
They’re not so much a team of individuals but a unit with players able to move in and out.
Losing a first team player is obviously a blow, but not as much as it would be for someone like Forest.
It’s an annoying blow.
James has looked impressive in recent weeks and was starting to become a very important player for the Swans.
Their squad isn’t the greatest in terms of depth so hopefully he’ll be back for them soon.
