Swansea City are back in FA Cup action on Saturday afternoon and the S4C cameras will be at the Liberty Stadium for the first time to televise the match from 12:50pm.
Brendan Rodgers' side kicked off the competition with a comfortable 4-0 win against Colchester United earlier this month, and they'll be looking for similar success against another League One side - this time Leyton Orient.
Orient, now managed by Russell Slade and his assistant - former player Kevin Nugent, caused a big upset in the 3rd round by beating Norwich City 1-0 at Carrow Road, but they can have repeat success?
Leyton Orient assistant manager Kevin Nugent:
"I enjoyed every minute I had down there and I`m not surprised to see them doing well. The chairman has done a fantastic job in terms of building the club for the future.
"He has made some brave decisions over the years but he has stuck to his guns and the club is well respected throughout football these days."
'Our game plan is to win the game,'
'We'll have a strong side and will respect Leyton Orient because they had a fantastic result in the last round.
'We will prepare for the game as we always do; respect the opponent, look into every detail and concentrate on our own game. '
Obviously, being at home, we're very strong and if we play our normal game we have a good chance of going through.
'We had a terrific performance and result against Colchester in the last round and we want more of the same.'
Rodgers is expected more changes to his team line-up having made 5 for the 3rd round win against Colchester United.
Leon Britton is cup tied so is unavailable and new signing Ryan Harley is back at Exeter City on loan.
The likes of Makalambay, Alfei, Dobbie, Beattie, van der Gun and Agustien are some of the second team players who are hoping to get a chance to impress.
Andrea Orlandi is also available again after a thigh injury.
Back to his goalscoring habits of late, 3 from the penalty spot in recent games plus a cracking strike nearly a month ago away at Leicester City. He may be rested for this game but he certainly has the ability and confidence again it seems to do the damage against Orient.
From Vital Orient:
Slade has a few injury concerns, in particular captain Stephen Dawson who is a major doubt for the game after going off injured against MK Dons during the week.
On-loan midfielder Tommy Carroll is eligible to play and good feature for the first time against Swansea.
From Vital Orient:
Smith scored the winner in the last round against Norwich and his rejuvenation in the team has continued during recent weeks. A hard-worker who will have to support the O's defence and attack tomorrow.
Swansea City have lost 1 in the last 5, same as Orient. Orient have only one defeat in their last 14 games in all competitions.
Orient are 36 places below Swansea City in the Football League.
The last time the two sides met was in the 2007/08 season, the Swans did the double over Orient with a massive 9-1 aggregate score.
Referee: Stuart Attwell (Warwickshire) Assistant referees: Andy Garratt and Patrick Keane Fourth official: Rob Lewis
A tougher game than some might think after Orient's surprise 1-0 win at Norwich City in the 3rd round.
Another patient start for us Swans fans to watch at first but I expect our extra quality to show through in the second half and give us a comfortable win after a possible early scare? Swansea to win 3-1
