Swansea have clean bill of health
Swansea boast a full-strength squad for their crunch clash against top-two rivals Norwich at the Liberty Stadium.
Forward Stephen Dobbie missed last weekend`s disappointing 2-1 defeat at lowly Preston with a back spasm, while full-back Angel Rangel was only deemed worthy of a place on the bench after suffering from a stomach bug. But both players are back to full fitness as the Swans aim to bounce back in Saturday`s evening kick-off, knowing victory would move them back to within one point of the Canaries.
Fit-again skipper Garry Monk (knee) returned at Deepdale to make his first start at the centre of defence in 11 weeks, while on-loan striker Tamas Priskin was handed a 63rd-minute debut following his loan arrival from Ipswich.
Tom Butler (thigh) played his first match in a year for City`s reserves in midweek but is unlikely to be considered for this weekend, while the likes of fringe players Leon Britton, Craig Beattie, Andrea Orlandi and Cedric van der Gun all got valuable match practice under their belts in the clash.
