Jansson set to return for Brentford’s Boxing Day clash against Swansea

Defender Pontus Jansson is expected to return for Brentford’s home game with Swansea on Boxing Day.

Jansson missed the 1-1 draw away to Sky Bet Championship leaders West Brom on Saturday with what Bees boss Thomas Frank described as a “minor hip injury”.

But Frank will keep changes to a minimum after being delighted with the manner of sixth-placed Brentford’s performance at the Hawthorns.

Sergi Canos and Nikos Karelis (both knee) remain out but Joel Valencia (dislocated shoulder) has rejoined the squad.

Swansea are below Brentford on goal difference after their weekend win at Luton and loan pair Ben Wilmot and Sam Surridge (both muscle tightness) face fitness tests.

Wales defender Declan John will also be assessed after rolling his ankle in training.

Jay Fulton, Kyle Naughton and Wayne Routledge will come into consideration should head coach Steve Cooper choose to rotate during the busy holiday programme.

Joe Rodon (ankle) and Jordon Garrick (hamstring) remain out until next month.
