Chesterfield vs. Swansea

Recreation Ground

Spireites vs Swans

Swansea will go all out to beat Chesterfield tomorrow as they hope to extend their season by gaining a play off spot.

Just like last year, it's gone to the final game of the season to determine our fate, whether we remain in League One or whether we'll battling it out in the play offs for a place in the Championship.

Tickets for the long trip North have sold out as around 2,000 Swans fans will be at the Recreation Ground.

Doing the double over Chesterfield tomorrow will almost guarantee a play off spot unless Nottingham Forest can thrash Bradford by 5 or 6 clear goals.

Our fate is in our own hands and we need another performance like the one we produced against Southend last weekend.

Kenny Jackett:

'Our own performance is everything, we have to be positive, win, and forget the rest of the country,'

'The next 10 days decide if our season has been a success or not.'

'I feel we've been making strides forward in the last few games, we look like scoring again. But we have to be ruthless at the back, two clean sheets in 20 games tells a story.

'Last week was a reflection of our season, 2-2 against the leaders Southend was not a bad result but we let them back into the game twice.

'Chesterfield have nothing to play for and they will put in a few youngsters, but that could work against us - it will be tough and competitive, and ultimately it's all about our performance.

Chesterfield Team News:

Youngsters Lowry and Foyle should remain in an unchanged side as Lee Richardson is without Shane Nicholson, Alex Bailey, Steve Blatherwick, Colin Heath and Caleb Folan.

Reuben Hazell is also a doubt with a head injury he suffered against Port Vale.

Player to watch: Paul Hall

The Jamaican midfielder has scored 15 goals in 43 starts in the League for the Spireites this season after his move from Tranmere last year.

His former clubs include Portsmouth, Coventry, Walsall and Sheffield United.

Swansea Team News:

Leon Britton looks likely to return to the starting line-up after recovering from a groin injury that kept him out last week.

Kenny Jackett will decide whether to play 17 year-old Shaun MacDonald or Tommy Williams on the left wing as McLeod is out after breaking his ankle.

O'Leary is battling to recover from a foot injury as Owain Tudur-Jones stands by for a possible call up.

Player to watch: Rory Fallon:

He produced an excellent performance against Southend last Saturday and we need the two strikers to be on form tomorrow.

Match Facts & Stats

We played Chesterfield at the end of October and beat them 5-1, but despite of the scoreline they looked like a good side.

They were 7th then and looked strong competitors for the play-offs but in the last 2-3 months their poor form has seen drop into the bottom half of the league.

They haven't won at home since January 7th, they beat Bradford 1-0.

Next Fixtures:

Let's hope for a game next Thursday!

If we play anything like we did againt Chesterfield ... Were allready on our way to the mIllenium... What a Gamee !! .. If Kenny Jackett doesn't pick Leon Knight .. there must be something wrong with him .. he made a hatrick on his debut and then makes a hatric again to get us in to playoffss !! .. Leon Knight Knight Knight :D ... He hasnt had many games where he has been on the starting line .. but the few he has... he has played awesome and scored some stunning goals ! SO C'mon Knight and C'mon City !! :D:D
