Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez will be forced to assess the fitness of a number of key players before naming his side tomorrow as Port Vale visit the Liberty Stadium.
He will assess the fitness of Izzy Iriekpen, Leon Britton, Kris O'Leary, Tom Butler and Andy Robinson while Tate completes his 2-match suspension.
Martinez said: 'There were a lot of positives to come out of the Bristol game,''
'We obviously want to win games at this stage of the season, so we can't be totally happy with the performance and a point.
'But we created 15 chances from a variety of departments and another performance like that should give us the three points next time.
'We've got a fantastic opportunity to get them straight away against Port Vale because it's a totally different scenario to Ashton Gate. But coming just 48 hours after that game it's going to be very demanding.''
His assistant Graeme Jones praised the squad in his interview with the match programme and said: 'I'm going to make a big statement here, but I can honestly say I've never worked with such an enthusiastic and energetic bunch of players in my life.
'It's a challenge for me to maintain that level of energy and enthusiasm every day on the training field, but it's a challenge I'm relishing.
'Motivation has never been a problem for the players and sometimes you've actually got to hold them back.''
