Hernandez: Won't be risked

Swansea and Norwich do battle in Premier League action at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday both without their first-choice goalkeepers.

Swans manager Michael Laudrup will not rush Michel Vorm back into action as the Netherlands international has only recently returned to training from a groin injury.

Meanwhile, Canaries number one John Ruddy faces a lengthier spell on the sidelines having undergone a thigh operation which has ruled him out for three months.

This means Jacob Bunn will once again deputise for Chris Hughton's side between the sticks, having made his home debut in the 2-1 defeat of Sunderland last Sunday at Carrow Road.

Much to Hughton's relief, Sebastien Bassong will not face a spell out and is fit to start despite limping off in the win over the Black Cats. Michael Turner and Harry Kane remain absent through injury.

The impressive Gerhard Tremmel continues in Vorm's absence for the Welsh outfit.

However, record club signing Pablo Hernandez will not be risked as he struggles to shake off a thigh injury.

Wayne Routledge could make his long-awaited return from an ankle problem which could result in the Premier League's joint top-scorer Michu moving up front once again.
