Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers is happy to count on Leroy Lita should Danny Graham fail to recover from an Achilles injury.

Rodgers is confident the former Reading and Middlesbrough forward can step into the breach.

"Leroy is very hungry," he said. "He has been fantastic and he is a great professional, and that's not easy as a striker as you live for goals and games.

"He has been a great squad player and he has to keep working, and when the chance comes he has to take it.

"When he came on last week he was strong and aggressive and he can give defenders problems, and if Danny is not ready and I need to use Leroy I will have no doubts, that's why I brought him here."
