Scotland To Miss Carlisle Clash

Scotland To Miss Carlisle Clash

Jason Scotland is a major doubt as Roberto Martinez prepares for the top of the table clash against Carlisle United at Brunton Park on Saturday.

The striker had missed Swansea's 3-0 win over Southend United with a stomach strain

Scotland had been on a good run of form scoring 3 goals in two games. His injury along with Warren Feeney's Liberty departure has left Swansea with only 2 experienced strikers to face The Cumbrians come Saturday afternoon.

Guillem Bauza looks all but set for his first league start after his move to Swansea City from Espanyol B in the summer.

The Spaniard has slowly adapted to life in British football and has been pushing for a starting place in Roberto Martinez's squad.

Out of form Darryl Duffy also looks set to feature for the first time since a substitute appearance vs Horsham in the FA Cup.The former Falkirk player has only scored two goals since his move from Hull City in the summer transfer window.

Swansea Manager Roberto Martinez has highlighted that his decision to build a large squad has been vindicated.

He told The Evening Post:

'Jason is still feeling sore and although it is not a long-term injury, it is a big concern for us,' said Martinez.I have seen people recover from this in two days but longer in other cases.'

Warren is out as well and we will have to sit down and see what is happening with his future. But we have got Bussy (Bauza), who has been working really hard, and Darryl Duffy. The way Darryl has been performing in training recently is the best I have seen him in.'

Injuries are frustrating but this is what happens in football. I said at the start of the season that we need a big squad and this is the reason why.'



Jason Scotland is expected to be fully fit for the Boxing Day fixture against Cheltenham Town at the Liberty Stadium.
