Bees vs Swans 2nd Leg

Swansea Head to Griffin park on terms with the Bees. 19,000 + fans crowed into the Liberty Stadium on Thursday night, it was a tense affair with the Bees Controlling the First half. Brentford took full advantage of poor Swans defending when Tabb cooling placed 29th minute goal. The Swans were lucky not to be punished even further. The 2nd Half started in the same form as the 1st half until Leon Knight was upended by the Bees Goalkeeper Stuart Nelson. The Swans surged forward looking for an equaliser and their patience came of with a 87th Minute goal from Sam Rickkets. The Swans have a great chance to progress but must control the midfield.

The Swans have mobilised the Jack Army as a trip down the M4 to Griffin Park will prove to be the most crucial game to date in the hunt for the last place in the championship next season.

Vital Quotes:

'We've now made it a cup final on Sunday, away goals don't count so we start again all square,'

Swansea Defender Sam Ricketts.

''We need an improved performance elsewhere. We need to get closer to Brentford and be more competitive�..We need to be brighter and we need to be quicker to the ball.''

Swansea Manager Kenny Jackett

Brentford Team News:

Jackett has no new injury worries since Thuesday's first leg. An unchanged side is likely.

Player to watch: Sam Sodje

Signed in the summer of 2004 , Sodje is a powerful defender and is proven goal scorer netting 7 from defence this season. Swansea will have to bypass Sodje to get a result.

Swansea Team News:

Look to remain unchanged from the 1st leg, however Sam Sodje is set to return to the Bee�s defence. Stuart Nelson the Bee�s goalkeeper is set to start despite being sent off in the first leg due to his appeal hearing not being held until Monday is allowed to play.

Player to watch: Lee Trundle

Looked effective against the Bees on Thursday night coming on as a substitute, will cause problems to the Bees defence.

Match Prediction:

I think it will be too close to call, with home advantage Brentford look set to secure their place in League 1 playoff final. However the if the swans can keep tight, control the midfield area and give good service from the wingers to the forwards then the Swans can overhaul league position to secure their place and give the fans another millennium stadium away day for the fans.
