Swansea vs Coventry Lineups, Match Information, and Team News

Swansea

The Welsh side brought in two new attackers Jerry Yates and Mykola Kukharevych who should replace Michael Obafemi, the center-forward that was sold to the Premier League side Burnley. Steven Benda is a long-term injury problem for the hosts.

Potential lineup: Rushworth, Darling, Cabango, Wood, Ashby, Fulton, Grimes, Cooper, Key, Piroe, Yates.

Coventry

After losing to Leicester in the Championship opener and going down in the EFL Cup to AFC Wimbledon, Coventry finally took one win defeating Middlesbrough in round 2 of the league. Coventry earned plenty of money by selling star players Viktor Gyokeres to Sporting Lisbon and Gustavo Hamer to Sheffield United and then reinvested some of that money to bring in Haji Wright, Ellis Simms, and Milan van Ewijk. Jamie Allen, Fabio Tavares, and Callum O'Hare are missing the tie due to various injuries.

Potential lineup: Wilson, Latibeaudiere, McFadzean, Thomas, Dasilva, Sheaf, Eccles, van Ewijk, Palmer, Wright, Simms.

Player to Watch: Haji Wright

The 25-year-old American striker Haji Wright was a big summer signing by Coventry who brought him from the Turkish outfit Antalyaspor. This is the first time Wright has been playing in England after going through plenty of leagues in his eight-year career. The US attacker already scored his first goal for Coventry in only two appearances for the club.

Wright, a Los Angeles-born player, started his youth career at Los Angeles Galaxy's academy, but soon after he found himself without a club. He was given a lifeline by moving to Germany's Schalke 04 where he managed to get through toward the senior squad. Later on, he played for Sandhausen, Venlo, and Sonderjyske before moving to Turkey. He was capped seven times by the USA national team scoring a couple of goals.
