Match Preview

No worries for Swans Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has no new injury concerns ahead of the visit of Burnley. However, the Swans will still be without several first-team players as they look to bounce back from the 2-0 defeat to Norwich. Striker Craig Beattie and midfielder Tom Butler are still around a week away from returning to contention with calf and thigh injuries respectively. Butler's fellow midfielder Ferrie Bodde (knee), striker Gorka Pintado (shoulder) and defender Angel Rangel (thigh) are all long-term casualties. Rodgers had been linked with a loan move for Arsenal's Henri Lansbury to bolster his ranks, however, should the deal be completed, the midfielder would be unavailable for the clash against the Clarets as he has picked up a minor groin strain. Swansea have started the season sluggishly, with just one win in the league from three games, however, they have scored seven goals in two outings at the Liberty Stadium this season. A 3-0 victory over Barnet in the Carling Cup was followed by a 4-0 rout of Preston and Swansea will be looking to continue that form against Brian Laws' men. Burnley boss Brian Laws will recall several key men.. Laws made nine changes to his starting line-up for Tuesday`s 3-1 win at Morecambe in the Carling Cup. Teenage winger Michael King, 18, and 20-year-old striker Wes Fletcher both made their senior debuts at the Globe Arena. But players such as Ross Wallace, Chris Iwelumo and goalkeeper Brian Jensen are expected to return as the Clarets seek to build on their impressive start to the season. Defender Michael Duff remains sidelined with a slight calf tear and midfielder Chris McCann is a long-term absentee with a knee injury, but Laws is not expecting to bring in any new faces before the transfer window closes.

Match Report

Sinclair opens Swans account Scott Sinclair's first npower Championship goal since joining Swansea ended Burnley's unbeaten start to the season in a match that saw both sides finish with 10 men at the Liberty Stadium. Sinclair, who signed from Chelsea earlier this month, kept his cool to convert the only goal of the game from close range after eight minutes as the Swans made it two wins from two in the Championship on home soil. Darren Pratley was denied by the woodwork and later sent off on an eventful afternoon for the midfielder before Tyrone Mears was also shown a red card for two bookings. Alan Tate headed wide inside the opening five minutes after meeting a David Cotterill free-kick and the hosts made the most of a promising start to surge ahead with eight minutes played. Nathan Dyer exchanged passes with Pratley before producing a cross that Stephen Dobbie miskicked, but the ball fell kindly for Sinclair to net from close range. Dobbie did connect properly with another Dyer centre shortly after, prodding wide from the edge of the six-yard box. Swansea continued to dominate and were fortunate not to double their advantage when Pratley's 12-yard strike clipped the top of the crossbar, while Martin Paterson tested Dorus De Vries from 25 yards at the other end on a rare Burnley attack. Paterson went close again from distance on the half-hour mark before Sinclair fired at Brian Jensen from just outside the penalty area. Chris Iwelumo failed to hit the target with a close-range header from Graham Alexander's cross - and the former Wolves star and Dean Marney spurned further chances for the visitors just before the half-time interval. The lively Cotterill blazed over from fully 25 yards after the restart and Pratley tried his luck from distance to no avail. Dyer and Sinclair combined again to allow the latter a sight at goal only for the former Chelsea trainee to fire wide. Two red cards in the space of as many minutes then changed the complexion of the game. Pratley was the first to be dismissed for a challenge on Mears that earnt him his second booking of the afternoon. Mears then received his marching orders after clattering Dyer and referee Steve Tanner wasted little time in brandishing a second yellow to the former Preston and Derby defender. Steven Thompson replaced Paterson and almost hauled the sides level within four minutes of being introduced. Danny Fox crossed and Thompson saw his six-yard header saved by De Vries. Jack Cork, on loan at Turf Moor from Chelsea, rifled over from 30 yards as Burnley searched for an equaliser and Thompson shot wide from a similar range during a frantic finish. Andrea Orlandi went close at the opposite end and Ross Wallace crashed over a 25-yard free-kick, but the Swans hung on to take all three points.
