Britton has missed two days of training so far this week and Cork will lead out the side if the 33-year-old remains absent.

Elsewhere Gylfi Sigurdsson is a potential starter at The Liberty Stadium after his Euro 2016 exploits - the Iceland playmaker came off the bench in the opening day 1-0 win at Burnley - and South Korean Ki Sung-yueng is likely to be involved after his own international and military service over the summer.

Wales defender Neil Taylor though is again omitted to build up his fitness after the Euros, while club record signing Borja Baston misses out on making his debut after picking up a leg muscle injury in training.

The spectacular reaction to Jade Jones winning Olympic gold

It was another golden day of Olympic action in Rio - but the real Olympic party was in Flint.

Family and friends of double Olympic gold medalist Jade Jones cheered her on from halfway across the world.

This was their reaction to the local girl creating history on the global stage:


Hannah Mills secures ninth Welsh gold for Team GB

The 28-year-old from Cardiff, who started sailing at the age of eight, only had to finish her race today after already securing enough points for top spot.

Four years on from taking silver on the home waters of Weymouth and Portland, the duo arrived in Brazil determined to go one better.

It was a challenge Mills and Clark met, producing an opening series as impressive as it was consistent to see them head into the women's 470 medal race all but assured of gold.

The British duo merely had to complete the double-point medal race without disqualification and duly did so, easing home in eighth in the delayed finale to rubber-stamp glory.

The 38-year-old, who made his county debut in 1996, was the last remaining player from Glamorgan’s 1997 County Championship title triumph still playing.

Cosker took 957 wickets in total for Glamorgan and England A, with whom he toured in 1997/98 and 1998/99, including 597 in first-class cricket.

He was particularly effective in one-day cricket and was vital in Glamorgan’s national league titles in 2002 and 2004. He also played in two Lord’s finals in 2000 and 2013.

“I feel very humbled and privileged to have had the opportunity to represent Glamorgan Cricket over the past 21 years. I have been very lucky to rub shoulders with some of the game’s finest players and characters, and both on the field and in the changing room I have been able to share some fantastic times that will stay with me as great memories for years to come.I have loved my time at Glamorgan and feel proud to say this was the only county I ever wanted to play for.
