Garry Monk has confirmed Nelson Oliveira will be assessed after the striker was forced off having failed to recover from a "heavy" Ryan Shawcross challenge during the win over Stoke on Saturday.
Oliveira has been struggling with a niggling problem for the past few weeks but the ferocity of the tackle rolled his ankle and the striker was unable to continue. Swansea [and the player] are hopeful the injury is not too serious although a thorough assessment won’t be carried out until Tuesday when hopefully the swelling subsides. Oliveira has 3-games to prove his worth and secure a permanent deal at the Liberty while Garry Monk is currently lacking an out-and-out striker with Bafetimbi Gomis [hamstring] out. Marvin Emnes or Modou Barrow are options to lead the line although neither are ideally suited. Sun, May 3, 2015 09:45:00 AM
