New loan signing Febian Brandy could return to action tonight against Palamos after recovering from a twisted ankle.

The young striker rejoined us recently on another 6-month loan but has yet to feature in any of the Spanish friendlies so far because of the injury.

Roberto Martinez is again expected to use his full squad tonight to give his players some much needed match-time ahead of the season’s opening game at Charlton in 2 weeks’ time.

Martinez explained to swanseacity.net how these games are helping him with their preparation for the new season:

‘We are still working on combinations and it’s up to each individual to play their way into the side at Charlton.

‘But the new faces already look as if they’ve been playing for Swansea for a long time, which is a good sign.”

‘It was another 45 minutes of fitness work on the back of the game against Espanyol,”

‘You could see the boys enjoying their football and getting rid of the bad taste from that game.

‘Off the ball we worked hard on the tactical side of things. You could see the difference tonight from the Espanyol game – and that’s why we are here.

‘We scored two good goals with great finishes from Tom and Bussy. And, we could have had a few more if the linesman had allowed them,”
