Roberto Martinez will turn his attentions to the Carling Cup on Tuesday evening as he prepares to face Brentford at the Liberty Stadium.
Both Swansea and Brentford were left picking up the pieces after opening day defeats. The Bees's being stung by a 42nd minute Andy Bishop strike that saw Bury pick up all three points at Gigg Lane.

Swansea City manager Roberto Martinez is expected to ring the changes from Saturday's side with another important League game to be played on the weekend. Dorus De Vries is sure to keep his place but there is likely to be changes throughout the field.
The likes of Tate and Lawrence could be given important match time along with new signings Fede Bessone and Alberto Serran. Captain Garry Monk serves a one match ban after his sending off against Charlton.
In midfield, Orlandi didn't even make the bench at the Valley so he'll be hoping to start on the left wing. Alongside him could be the likes of Owain Tudur-Jones, Shaun MacDonald and Kristian O'Leary.
Martinez will be without Angel Rangel and Gorka Pintado who are both injured, while Jason Scotland is still lacking match fitness to start a full game.
Is likely to play again due to our lack of strikers that are fit. After firing blanks in front of goal at Charlton, he'll be looking to get on the scoresheet on Tuesday night.
Brentford are also likely to make changes to their side. Defender Sam Wood is required to have a late fitness test after suffering a knock to his ankle while Charlie MacDonald is out with a groin problem. Gary Smith and Ryan Dickson are also doubtful.
The striker joined the club at the beginning of last season from Hereford and scored 12 goals in 36 games, average a goal every 3 games.
Brentford finished 14th in League Two last season.
Head to Head:
Swansea League Wins - 27, Brentford Wins - 26, Draws - 19.
Swansea City are yet to beat Brentford in the League Cup, drawing 1 and losing 1.
Referee: S J Bratt Assistant Officials: A P Bennett and A Williams Fourth Official: K Johnson
Swansea City should be looking at a comfortable win and progression through to the second round. Score: 2-0 win.
