Swansea caretaker boss Alan Curtis is refusing to take Slaven Bilic’s word on Andy Carroll’s absence tomorrow (Sun) and is planning around the big fella turning out at the Liberty Stadium.
Speaking ahead of the game Curtis said: “I’m not sure why their manager would give out information on their centre-forward being injured at such an early stage.
“I’m not 100 per cent sure he’s not going to play against us, we’re going to factor in that he is playing and hope we can deal with him.”
“If he doesn’t play that will be a huge bonus for us because he’s certainly been a thorn in our side on a number of occasions,”
Curtis takes charge of his second game since Garry Monk’s sacking and added: ‘l”If they get the service in to such a big fella he will cause anyone problems.”
