Blackburn are vying for a record-equalling fourth successive league win in this fixture.
Swansea last beat Rovers on 4 April 1981 in the old Division Two.
The Swans have lost their last four Premier League games, having won the previous three. They have never lost five top-flight matches in a row.
They have been defeated in their last two home matches without scoring.
Swansea have failed to score in 14 league matches this season, the equal-most in the division with Bolton.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have lost just one of the 12 league games in which they scored first this season (W8, D3, L1).
Danny Graham is two goals shy of reaching 100 in his career. He has gone eight league games without scoring.
They have suffered four straight defeats, their worst sequence since losing six in a row in November and December 2008.
Rovers are unbeaten in their last 13 Premier League games against promoted teams since a 2-1 loss at Birmingham City in December 2009.
