Blackpool boss Simon Grayson says his side will be all out for the win on Saturday as they look to gain automatic promotion to the Championship.
The Seasiders are currently two points adrift of 2nd placed Bristol City and they'll be hoping both Forest and Bristol will drop points next weekend.
Grayon's side particularly impressed last week I thought with a 3-1 home win against League champions Scunthorpe, despite having a man sent off in the first half.
Ahead of the game he said: 'We will go to Swansea and give it a right good go and whatever happens, happens,''
'Full credit to the lads that we've taken it this far that we can go up automatically on the last day of the season,'
'It should be a cracking game because Swansea obviously need a result to get into the play-offs and we still need the points, so the lads will be thoroughly looking forward to it.
'Anything can happen. Strange results in all the divisions always happen on the last Saturday.
'All we have to do is try and beat Swansea and if Bristol City lose and Forest draw or lose, we've suddenly come from nowhere to win promotion. It's unlikely, but why not? You never know.'
Martinez's side face a tough test as Blackpool have won 6 games in a row, their last defeat was away at Rotherham at the end of March.
Alan Tate also shared his views of next Saturday's game and said: 'If I'm honest, we thought Brighton would get something against Oldham to put it in our own hands on Saturday. But it didn't turn out that way and now we've got to look over our shoulder at the Oldham result.
'You would expect Oldham to beat Chesterfield, so it could come down to how many goals we can score against a Blackpool side that have plenty to play for themselves with automatic promotion up for grabs.
'It was never going to be easy anyway because Blackpool are a good side, but we've got nothing to lose.
'We've had some big wins at the Liberty over the past two seasons, beating the likes of Bristol City 7-1 and Carlisle 5-0, so perhaps we'll have to produce something special again.
'Saying that, who's to say that Oldham won't slip up, while I'm sure the supporters will be letting us know how they are getting on during the game.''
