Bersant Celina is available as Swansea seek to keep their Sky Bet Championship play-off hopes alive at home to Hull.

Celina has missed the last two games through illness and the Kosovo international is expected to be among the Swansea substitutes.

Leroy Fer will be checked after complaining of a sore knee following the 1-0 victory at Ipswich, the Easter Monday win marking the Dutch midfielder’s return to action after nearly three months out with a hamstring problem.

Swansea are five points adrift of sixth-placed Derby with three games remaining and are at home to the Rams on Wednesday.

Hull pair Markus Henriksen and Reece Burke are described as “touch and go” by boss Nigel Adkins to feature at the Liberty Stadium.

The duo picked up knocks in the Good Friday defeat at West Brom which saw them miss the Easter Monday home clash with Sheffield United.

One or two more players, according to Adkins, are carrying bumps and bruises and will be assessed as Hull seek to end a run of three straight defeats.

With loanee Marc Pugh having returned to parent club Bournemouth after his season-ending injury,  the Tigers’ casualty list could see academy graduates Brandon Fleming and Max Sheaf gain some first-team experience.
