Chico Flores to miss Swansea's trip to Southampton
Friday 09 November 2012
Swansea defender Chico Flores is set to miss Saturday's trip to face Southampton as he struggles to overcome a dead leg.
The Spaniard suffered the injury in the Capital One Cup win over Liverpool and missed the draw with Chelsea. Manager Michael Laudrup rates him as "very doubtful" to face the Saints.
Club captain Garry Monk is set to continue in the centre of defence while Michel Vorm (groin), Kyle Bartley (thigh) and Neil Taylor (broken ankle) are all out.
Provisional squad: Cornell, Tremmel, Flores, Tate, Williams, Britton, Michu, Graham, Hernandez, Dyer, Routledge, Monk, Shechter, Moore, De Guzman, Tiendalli, Rangel, Ki, Agustien, Gower, Richards, Davies.
