Swansea City's preparations for their final Europa League game at St Gallen have been disrupted after their departure to Switzerland was delayed.

The Premier League side were due to fly out at 10:00 GMT on Wednesday but were hit by fog and then a technical problem on the plane.

They eventually left at 17:20 GMT on a replacement plane but will arrive too late to have a training session.

Swansea need a point from Thursday's game to reach the knock-out stage.

Manager Michael Laudrup was not with the squad, having travelled independently to Zurich meaning he will be able to fulfil pre-match media obligations.
