Brendan Rodgers' team will be looking to stay 2nd come 5pm this afternoon but they face a Scunthorpe side battling against relegation.

The Swansea boss says his team need to adapt to different games as teams will approach us in different ways - particularly now as we move up to the automatic promotion places on the back of 4 wins.

Tough game today as many people have said. i'll predict a 2-2 draw as Scunthorpe are battling for every point now. we struggled at coventry and the iron will be in our faces today and looking to make it as difficult as possible for us

If we get that early goal, I fancy a good win. If we don't it could be difficult.

A bit of a leveller today---this shows how hard the championship is. I've no doubt ther will be loads of ups and downs to come--hang in there everybody.

if we do go up this is what we'll have to do to stay up, grind out points at tough places where there's a bad pitch against dirty teams who play poor football. In the Prem it would be like going away to Stoke, Blackburn & Birmingham

We were lucky though--results went for us. We musn't desert our style though eye_ nose_hat---- if one thing comes out of the Premier league, it's ball retention and we are good at that.

By the way, a lot of people are knocking Alan Tate--what short memories these so called fans have. Tate has been consistently Mr. Swans for several seasons, has played through injuries and has thrown himself in the way of everything. Against Coventry he was magnificent. The man is simply our heart and soul---- come on --support him!!!!!

Right now Phil Tate is consistently making errors for us, and costly ones. An own goal in the FA Cup, he somehow got away with a handball vs Leeds and yesterday's penalty. Lets hope he doesn't soon become a liability, bring back Monk I say.
