CC1: Swans vs Wycombe

Swansea City move their attention to the Carling Cup tonight as they entertain Wycombe at the Liberty Stadium.

After winning 2 cups last season but missing out on promotion to the Championship, manager Kenny Jackett has admitted that the league will be his major priority this season.

He said: ''Right now, that's all much more important for our season than what competition we're actually competing in and that's why I don't really want to tamper with the side.

''I want things to settle down and I want to get into a habit of winning games.

''The competition is secondary, the confidence of my team is everything.''


Leon Britton (thigh) and Thomas Butler (hamstring) are the only new injury doubts since Saturday's match. Both are expected to be available to play but Butler is likely to make way for O'Leary in the centre while Britton should keep his place and move to the right flank.

Tate completes his 3-match suspension tonight while Robinson, Way and Tudur-Jones are still out injured.

Wycombe boss Paul Lambert is keen to get through tonight's round in hope of drawing a big club in Round Two. He said: ''Tonight's going to be a step up in class for us at a terrific new stadium,''

''We might make one or two changes, but I want to get through and draw a big team in the next round.''


Matt Bloomfield is out for the visitors with a hamstring injury while winger Antony Grant returns after suspension.

Goalkeeper Frank Talia is their only other player on the sidelines as he as a long-term knee injury.
