Swansea sweat on Flores fitness

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup admits Chico Flores is doubtful to face Southampton this weekend.

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup admits Chico Flores is doubtful to face Southampton this weekend.

The centre-back suffered a dead leg in the Capital One Cup win over Liverpool at Anfield and then sat out last weekend's 1-1 draw with Chelsea at the Liberty Stadium.

Laudrup said: "Chico is very doubtful, he is still in lot of pain. I knew when it happened against Liverpool it was very serious.

"Normally when you have a dead leg, you get up and play on but then it is sore for three or four days.

"So when Chico had to come off, I knew he was hurt, he wants to play every minute of every game. It was looking like eight or 10 days out so he is very doubtful for this weekend.

"There is no point risking him for one game if he is not right, because we have lots of games coming up over the next few months."
