KO: 17:00

Swansea City know that a win against Kuban Krasnodar on Thursday could see them qualify for the second round of the UEFA Europa League.

Team News

Kuban

Kuban will be looking to maintain the momentum established on the back of successive victories in the league – including a derby success against FC Krasnodar over the weekend.

Former Liverpool and QPR frontman Djibril Cisse is likely to pose their biggest attacking threat once again, with the Frenchman having converted the dramatic spot-kick awarded at the Liberty Stadium a fortnight ago.

Swansea

Michael Laudrup is without key man Michu for Thursday’s clash with Kuban. The Spaniard has an ankle injury while midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has also not travelled for personal reasons.

Swansea will be boosted by the news that left-back Ben Davies is available again after recovering quicker than expected from an ankle injury.

The Welshman will travel with a squad also missing Garry Monk (knee) and midfielder Pablo Hernandez (thigh).
