Hosts have just two fit senior centre-backs for Saturday's game, while defender Max Ehmer should start for the visitors

Graham Potter insists Swansea will fully focused on the FA Cup as they prepare to face League One Gillingham in the fourth round on Saturday.

Swansea City vs Gillingham -

Potter's side, who beat Aston Villa in the third round, are targeting a place in the fifth round for the second successive season.

Swansea's Wayne Routledge will miss his side's FA Cup tie with Gillingham with a calf injury, while Kyle Naughton is a doubt because of a knee problem.

Joe Rodon is ruled out after breaking his foot, while Joel Asoro and Nathan Dyer have been ill, but Wilfried Bony and Tom Carroll are back in training.

Victory over Sheffield United last Saturday saw the Swans move to within six points of the Championship play-off places but Potter will not prioritise the league over the FA Cup.

Gillingham, who beat Swans' Welsh rivals Cardiff City in the last round, may recall Max Ehmer for the tie.

The German defender could replace Alex Lacey, who was injured last week.

Meanwhile, Gillingham manager Steve Lovell, who made two league appearances for Swansea in 1987, is hoping to guide his side to another FA Cup upset against Welsh opposition after beating Premier League Cardiff in the third round.

Ehmer has had to bide his time sitting on the bench for the last two weeks, after recovering from a dislocated shoulder. But now Lacey is likely to be out of action for several weeks, paving the way for a return to the starting line-up for Ehmer.

Regan Charles-Cook and Tom Eaves could be restored to the starting XI after substitute roles in Gillingham's 3-0 home League One reverse at the hands of Walsall.

Team News

Swansea will be without centre-back Joe Rodon after the Welshman broke a metatarsal during his side's 1-0 win over Sheffield United.

And the hosts have a number of other concerns too, with Wayne Routledge (calf) ruled out of the game.

Nathan Dyer and Joel Asoro have both suffered with a sickness bug in the buildup to the cup encounter while Kyle Naughton has a knee problem that looks likely to rule him out of the contest.

Long-term absentee Martin Olsson remains sidelined.

The positive news is that striker Wilfried Bony looks set to be available having missed the win over Chris Wilder's side last time out with a knee concern while Tom Carroll has also continued to train after recovering from hip and groin problems.

As for the Gills, they will be without midfielder Billy Bingham and central defender Alex Lacey for the trip to South Wales.
