Swansea City play thier second of three aways games this week as they travel South to Brighton tonight.
Kenny Jackett will be hoping his side can gain another victory on the road after beating Darlington 3-1 in Saturday's FA Cup second round match.
There are 10 games in League One tonight and a win could possibly see us go up to 4th in the table.
With Trundle unlikely to play because of injury, Jackett could play new signing Craney up front, the Swans boss said:
'He has the experience of playing central midfield, but can fill any of the front six positions. He has the ability to create or score goals, whether he's up front, or in the wide areas coming off the line.''
Andrew Whing and Adam El-Abd return after suspension whilst Guy Butters is out with a calf injury.
Despite limping off during Saturday's game with an ankle problem, Tommy Fraser should be available for selection.
On-loan striker Dean Bowditch is still sidelined with a groin injury and is joined by Gary HArt, Charlie Oatway and Paul Reid.
The striker is Brighton's top scorer this season with a total of 12 goals, with 6 of them scored in the league. He is also the bookmakers' favourite to score first tonight.
Striker Lee Trundle is doubtful after picking up an injury against Darlington at the weekend and Jackett could go with Craney up front.
Marcos Painter (ankle) and Izzy Iriekpen (hamstring) are still doubts after missing Saturday's game. Kevin Austin and Shaun MacDonald also picked up knocks in the same game.
He's becoming one of our best performers now and he'll be one of the dangermen for Brighton to deal with tonight.
Like the Swans, Brighton have progressed through to the third round after beating Stafford Rangers 3-0 and will play a Premiership side - West Ham.
They're also through to Johnstone's Paint Trophy semi-final after beating Millwall on penalties.
Their league form isn't quite as good though with defeats in their last 2, 1-0 loses to Doncaster away and Tranmere at home.
Swansea are undefeated in the last 5 with 4 wins and a draw, our away form isn't bad either, winning the last 3 on the road.
Without Trundle and Akinfenwa and Fallon having 'mysterious bugs, it'll be difficult but I think we can manage to get a point.
Make sure you have predicted the score here
