Huw Jenkins has criticised the media for ignoring Swansea City this season, saying we're an even stronger team than last year.
The Swansea City chairman says the club have a habit of being ignored by the press, as they continually miss out on receiving tv revenue.
Saturday will be the first time that a Swansea City match will be televised live, and we're not featured on Sky Sports and BBC's future tv listings, which runs until January.
The two TV companies have concentrated on the bigger clubs in the division, the likes of Newcastle United, West Brom and Middlesbrough who have all recently been relegated from the Premiership.
Huw Jenkins is calling out for the team to prove to the media on Saturday exactly the sort of attractive football that they're missing.
'I have been watching Swansea for 35 or 40 years and we've always been overlooked,'
'Unless we win the Championship by 25 points and then break into the top four in the Premier League, we are going to get overlooked for most things.
'It doesn't matter what we do down here, people will find a reason to overlook us.
'I am talking about our media coverage, on the television and in the papers, both nationally and in Wales.
'Quite often we don't get a mention and that always seems to have been the case.'
'It goes on right throughout football,' Jenkins added.
'The money goes to the big teams. It seems that's how everybody thinks it should be.'
Jenkins says that Saturday's first television appearance of the season is the perfect opportunity to prove ourselves.
He added: 'The challenge is there for us,'
'We want people to be talking about our football club in the right way.
'Last year we got a long way towards that and people did start to recognise how well we were doing.
'But a lot of people have felt it was Roberto Martinez doing that and they have not noticed that we are still playing the same way.
'We probably look stronger than last year and yet we don't get a mention, but that should only make us stronger.
'It should make us more determined to prove people wrong.'
