SUNDERLAND target Danny Graham has been included on the Swansea bench for tonight’s Stadium of Light encounter.
Graham, who is keen to join the Black Cats before Thursday’s transfer deadline, was named among the substitutes by Swansea boss Michael Laudrup.
Sunderland were unchanged from the side which won at Wigan 10 days earlier, although there was a spot on the bench for new signing Kader Mangane, who took the place of out-of-contract James McFadden.
Swansea made three changes from the side which drew with Chelsea in the second leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final, with Dwight Tinedalli, Itay Schechter and Nathan Dyer all coming into the starting XI.
SUNDERLAND: Mignolet, Gardner, O’Shea, Bramble, Colback, Larsson, Vaughan, N’Diaye, Sessegnon, Johnson, Fletcher. Subs: Wickham, Westwood, Bardsley, Kilgallon, Mangane, McClean, Elmohamady.
SWANSEA: Tremmel, Tiendalli, Flores, Williams, Davies, Britton, de Guzman, Dyer, Hernandez, Michu, Schechter. Subs: Cornell, Bartley, Lamah, Routledge, Su-Yeung, Rangel, Graham.
