Lopez To Sit Out Again For Reading Match

Jordi Lopez looks unlikely to make a return to the starting 11 tomorrow night when Reading visit the Liberty Stadium.

The Spanish midfielder suffered a dead leg in last week's Carling Cup first round win against Brighton and Hove Albion and he missed Saturday's 3-0 defeat at home to Middlesbrough.

He's likely to miss Tuesday night's match against Reading but he should be available again on Saturday when we travel to Coventry City.

Paulo Sousa hasn't got any fresh injury concerns from Saturday's match and could name an unchanged side tomorrow night if he wants to. We're struggling in midfield though with Joe Allen, Darren Pratley and Ferrie Bodde sidelined. However, after watching the midfield get totally out muscled against Southgate's side, I feel we need Pintado to start just behind Dobbie to give us a more physical edge.

We'll be previewing the match soon with team news, quotes, match stats and predictions.

We'll also be posting match comments during tomorrow night's game. If you're on twitter, include #vswans in your updates for them to appear with ours in the live feed.

I agree about starting Pintado as well as Dobbie tomorrow night. MacDonald just isn't up to the job unfortunately

What a great signing Lopez looks NOOOOOOT

MacDonald and Orlandi are not physical enough to play this support role. Pintado is the most likely to support striker Dobbie. The only other player I can think of, and who is not afraid to shoot and add some muscle is Collins.
