A six-point deduction has dropped Reading close to relegation danger, but in truth their form has been worrying anyway as they have picked up just one win in their last seven matches, losing five of those.
Following a 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United on Tuesday, Veljko Paunovic‘s side could fall into the bottom three this weekend if they lose in Wales and Peterborough United beat Barnsley.
A potential six-pointer then awaits the Royals next weekend as they host a resurgent Hull City side who currently sit a point ahead of them in 19th.
Reading have never won a league game at the Swansea.com Stadium since it opened in 2005, while only three teams have picked up fewer points than the Berkshire outfit away from home this season.
Olivier Ntcham and Ryan Manning could both come back into Swansea’s starting lineup after making an impact off the bench in midweek.
Manning, along with midfielder Flynn Downes, is one yellow card away from incurring a one-match suspension.
Centre forward Joel Piroe has scored five goals and registered three assists in his last eight matches.
Alen Halilovic returned from injury with a substitute appearance for Reading against Sheffield United so could be in contention to start.
Femi Azeez and Dejan Tetek also returned to the matchday squad in midweek and Veljko Paunovic will hope to welcome back the likes of Andy Rinomhota and Jahmari Clarke in the coming games.
Andy Carroll is still lacking match fitness so is unlikely to start, but should be used from the bench for the third successive game.
