Tony Mowbray could make changes during the course of the week to keep energy and intensity levels high.

Mowbray recalled four players who missed the win at Bolton Wanderers before the international break against Leeds United on Saturday.

That included a man-of-the-match display from Adam Armstrong, but after requiring a huge physical effort to beat the Whites, Mowbray may freshen things up for tomorrow night's game at Swansea City, or for Saturday’s visit to West Brom.

“I think when you’ve got a group as tight as this it’s important they are all given an opportunity to contribute,” Mowbray explained.

“They are all desperate to contribute.

“The players we brought in during the summer are getting closer to understand the demands and work ethic required to play in this team.

“As we did at Bolton, we made a few changes and along the way this week we might make a few changes, not for any other reason than making sure we have the right energy levels and intensity levels to play how we want.

“Sometimes it’s difficult for some players to reproduce that every three days.

“We will utilise the squad when we feel it’s right and it’s pertinent.”

Harrison Reed should shake off a groin injury to be involved at the Liberty Stadium, while Danny Graham has also trained with the group after nursing a sore back.

Full back Ryan Nyambe and Jacob Davenport are back training with the squad after injury, with Davenport having played 60 minutes for the Under-23s in their defeat at Brighton.

Mowbray added: “Our injury situation is getting better. The longer-term ones are Dominic Samuel and Ben Gladwin. Ryan Nyambe is back on the grass and training, Davenport is back training and it’s what level we feel they need to be given game-time.

“Davenport played 60 minutes at Brighton for the Under-23s which was good for him. There’s an Under-23s cup game on Wednesday when some game-time will be given to some players.

“We’re doing okay, the squad is deep and competitive and strangely you find that when a team is doing well you get that. When things are going well and mentally you’re in a good place, you feel you have lots of options.

“This group are very much up for every test and at the moment I have some good choices and every time I look at my board in my office to pick a team I’m looking at the seven or eight who are not starting and thinking ‘that’s some tough decisions’.”
