The teams lineups are confirmed for today’s early afternoon kick-off as Swansea City look to maintain their unbeaten start to the Championship season in front of the Sky Sports cameras against Birmingham City.
The surprising change today sees Yan Dhanda earn a starting place in the starting eleven as George Byers has to settle for a place on the bench. Early reports say Byers has been ill this week.
Nathan Dyer and Aldo Kalulu both miss out due to injury.
The early reaction from Birmingham fans around the stadium is “all or nothing” in that they’ll either play amazingly or awful, there doesn’t seem to be a middle ground so far under former Swansea coach Pep Clotet.
Also missing out for the Swans is new signing Kristoffer Peterson who hasn’t been named amongst the substitutes today. There’s no news of an injury.
