Bournemouth skipper Steve Fletcher is backing the Swans in the play-offs as he provides BBC SPORT with his predictions in their play-off preview.
He's expecting a tight battle for the final vacant place in the Championship and said:
'All four teams are on a very even level - and on current form, there's nobody that really stands out for me. It's that tight,'
'I think you could put them all in a bag and draw one out. But if you put me on the spot, I'd say Swansea.'
'There's not one team where you can say that they're electrifying going forward, or they've got a bad defence.
'But Swansea have the firepower of Lee Trundle - so if you put them all within a yard, they might win by a millimetre.'
''I missed both Swansea games through injury, but I watched them play us at Dean Court and I thought they were streets ahead of anyone we've played.
They beat us 1-0, but they were absolutely awesome, and could easily have had seven or eight.
But since then, they've had a bad run - they went down from the top of the league and have gone in and out of the play-off positions.''
As you can expect, tickets are selling fast for Thursday's game against Brentford and already queues are believed to be stretching around a quarter of the stadium.
No doubt there'll be a huge rush tomorrow when they go on general sale.
