Brendan Rodgers is confident Swansea will remain in the play-off places

Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers says Queens Park Rangers' disciplinary hearing has not altered their work ahead of the final game of the season.

QPR have been crowned champions but could be docked points if found guilty of breaching FA rules, meaning Swansea could still go up automatically.

The Swans would need to beat relegated Sheffield United in Saturday's final game and hope Cardiff City slip up.

"We're not sitting waiting anxiously," Rodgers told BBC Sport Wales.

"We've worked very hard this week in preparing for Sheffield United. The objective for us is still the same. We want to finish the season as high as we can.

"We're not thinking about resting people or taking anything else out of the game other than win.

"So whether something else is on the game, it makes little odds, we just want to win."

The Swans are fourth in the table having already claimed a play-off spot and trail third-place Cardiff in by two points going into the final game of the regular season.

With Rangers having already Norwich City sealed second place with a on Monday night following Cardiff's defeat to Blackpool a few hours earlier.

Should QPR be found guilty and docked points, it would see Norwich crowned champions and Cardiff move up to second in the last automatic promotion spot.

To claim second spot for themselves, the Swans need to beat Sheffield United and Cardiff fail to beat Burnley.

The Football League will not change the scheduling of the play-offs, though, regardless of QPR's possible involvement as a result of any sanctions and subsequently appeal against the decision.

A decision on the case was expected by the Football Association on Friday, but an announcement has been delayed.

An FA statement read: "It was originally indicated that the decision of the commission on the charges and on any sanction, if appropriate, would be announced by 1600 BST on Friday, 6 May if possible.

"This will not now happen. A decision will be made and announced as soon as possible thereafter."

Rodgers though is preparing for the lottery of the play-offs with the first legs next Thursday and Friday.

"For ourselves, our own focus has purely been on our own performance away from Millwall and now getting ready for the last game of the season," he added.

"Our mentality is that 99.9% we're in the play-offs, but obviously of course there's an opportunity the door could open.

"That's nothing we can control. It's something amongst media and supporters and everyone else, there's been a lot surrounding it and a lot of what ifs.

"For ourselves, it hasn't really been too much of a concern."
