watch Fulham v Swansea City live streaming
Defender Garry Monk has been ruled out of Swansea's FA Cup fifth-round replay against Fulham on Tuesday night.Influential skipper Monk, who also missed the 3-1 Championship win over Doncaster at the weekend, has failed to recover in time from a back problem and will again miss out.
Midfielder Joe Allen is doubtful for Swansea after he picked up a thigh strain in that game and faces a late fitness test.
However, boss Roberto Martinez has been boosted by midfielder Jordi Gomez and defender Owain Tudur-Jones both coming through the weekend unscathed despite suffering slight knocks, and both should be fit to face to the Cottagers.
Striker Gorka Pintado is still about a fortnight away from a return and will miss the clash due to his hernia problems, while the Swans are also hampered by long-term injuries to Darren Pratley, Ferrie Bodde and Marcos Painter.
Martinez's side, who are ninth in the Championship, will face Manchester United should they see of Fulham.
