Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet faces a series of late decisions as he attempts to put together a team for Saturday's Premier League trip to Swansea.

Wickham missed Tuesday's FA Cup win at Fulham. Credit: PAStriker Connor Wickham, who missed Tuesday night's 3-1 FA Cup fourth round replay victory at Fulham with a calf injury sustained in the warm-up, is likely to sit out once again along with midfielder Lee Cattermole as he continues his recovery from a knee problem.

Adam Johnson (thumb surgery) and Jack Rodwell (groin) are rated at only 50-50, while fellow midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini suffered bruising during the game at Craven Cottage and is also a doubt, along with full-back Billy Jones and midfielder Will Buckley, who both have unspecified knocks.
