Swansea City will be targeting a return to winning ways when they welcome Fulham to the Liberty Stadium this evening after failing to win any of their last three matches.
Steve Cooper’s side sealed a 1-1 draw with Huddersfield during their last match on Tuesday night, but the Swansea boss now has a selection of injury concerns he will need to overcome ahead of the clash with the Cottagers tonight.
Swansea already have young duo Joe Rodon and Jordon Garrick unavailable as a result of injuries they suffered earlier this season, with Cooper confirming to WalesOnline on Thursday that the pair will be absent for the Fulham clash.
However, the Swans saw another key player added to the injury list following Tuesday’s clash with the Terriers, as Mike van der Hoorn was forced off at half-time with an injury he suffered following an aggressive challenge from Frazier Campbell.
Cooper has claimed the centre-back is “touch and go” to feature against the Cottagers, with it seeming possible that academy graduate Ben Cabango could step into the side following his assured debut in midweek as van der Hoorn’s replacement.

It appears Swansea wingers Nathan Dyer and Wayne Routledge are in a similar position after suffering small knocks of late, with Cooper also revealing that the experienced duo could miss out the Fulham encounter.
Swansea’s final injury concern is Aldo Kalulu who has been out of action since suffering an ankle injury in August, but Cooper has confirmed that the Basel loanee is making progress with his recovery as he is almost available for selection.
