Full back Marcos Painter will be sidelined for 2-3 weeks after picking up a foot injury during Friday’s 1-1 draw at home to Gillingham.

The left back left the field midway during the first half of the match and was replaced by Kevin Austin, who is likely to fill in that spot while he recovers.

The Swans are rather weak in numbers in that position. Austin is better suited as a centre back though the versatile Andrea Orlandi can play in any position down the left side.

Also out injured are Ferrie Bodde (hip), Owain Tudur-Jones (ankle) and Darren Way (hamstring).
