However Vorm, who clashed heads with defender Ben Davies in the 85th minute, is expected to miss Sunday's visit to Manchester United.

Laudrup pleased after 'intense' game

Vorm was undergoing further tests on Wednesday before the club could decide on his fitness.

However, first team coach Alan Curtis said it was likely the Dutchman would miss the trip to Old Trafford, which is Sir Alex Ferguson's last home game in charge of United.

Roger Espinoza's volley gave the hosts the lead on the stroke of half-time, but Angel Rangel hit back for Swansea.

James McCarthy restored Wigan's lead but goals from Itay Shechter and Dwight Tiendalli gave the visitors victory.

The win ended Swansea's seven-match winless run and boosted their chances of a top-10 finish. They are ninth in the table, five points clear of 11th-placed Stoke with two games remaining.

For Wigan, the result piled more pressure on former Swans boss Roberto Martinez as he attempts to steer his club clear of the relegation zone. The Latics are three points from safety.

Laudrup, in his first season as Swans boss, was delighted with his side's performance and said a top-10 finish would cap a fine campaign in which the Welsh club have won the Capital one Cup.

"In the second half especially, it was very intense, which is normal," said the Dane. "But I think coming back in an away game against Wigan twice, I can be very pleased as a manager.

"I think we could have done a little more in the first half, maybe to be a little more direct and keep the ball a little more.

"But we came back and I think a lot of credit should go to my players.

"I really think now we could end in the top 10, which, together with a great cup win, would be absolutely fantastic."
