Swansea City will be without striker Danny Graham for the visit of West Brom tonight, a game which could see them climb as high as sixth in the Premier League table.

Graham sat out Saturday's goal-less draw with Liverpool at the Liberty stadium after falling ill following the Swans 1-2 win at Newcastle United the previous week.

Despite efforts to shake off the sickness bug Graham, who's netted three times this campaign, has not been included in Michael Laudrup's provisional squad for the game.

Laudrup may also have to do without the services of midfielder Jonthan de Guzman who is a doubt after picking up a hamstring strain.

There was better news on the selection front though with Luke Moore returning to action after a suffering the same illness as Graham, and he goes straight into tonight's squad.

High flying visitors West Brom return to the Liberty Stadium on the back of a remarkable opening phase of the season which has seen them climb to 3rd in the Premier League table, just four points behind leaders Manchester United.

Defender Jonas Olsson is an injury doubt for the game after picking up a calf injury during Saturday's 4-2 win at Sunderland, while the Baggies will assess the fitness of midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu who missed the trip to the Stadium Of Light with a hamstring injury. Keeper Ben Foster (groin) is again ruled out.

While their recent form suggests the Swans will have their work cut out tonight the history books edge the home side slightly ahead:





Provisional Swansea City squad: Bartley, Flores, Williams, Britton, Lita, Michu, Hernandez, Dyer, Cornell, Routledge, Monk, Shechter, Moore, De Guzman, Tiendalli, Rangel, Ki, Tremmel, Agustien, Gower, Richards, Davies.
