Swansea vs. Yeovil

Liberty Stadium

1st Sept 2006


Preview: Swans vs Yeovil

Over 19,000 fans watched the Swans beat Yeovil at the Liberty Stadium on a Friday night last season and we look now forward to the same fixture this year.

Trundle's lob from just inside his own half will still be firm in the memory as he secured only our second win against the Glovers that day.

Vital Quotes:

Kenny Jackett:

"The Yeovil game is a massive one for us and we are all determined to show the fans what we can do,''

"Evening games under floodlights usually produce a special atmosphere at the Liberty Stadium and I am sure that will be the case again tonight.

"We are expecting a good crowd and I am sure the fans will drive us on as we look to build on the last two encouraging wins in the League.

"I know our home performances have not been anything to write home about yet, but we all feel inside the club there is a lot more to come from us.''

Swansea Team News:

Kenny Jackett has been handed a big boost head of tomorrow night's game with the news that Lee Trundle and Andy Robinson should be back fit and ready to play.

It was initially thought that the Swans boss would have two targetmen available up front in Rory Fallon and Adebayo Akinfenwa as Leon Knight is out with a 1-match ban.

Leon Britton should also return while Darren Way will be hoping to play some part against his former club as he's likely to make it to the bench again.

Tudur-Jones is still out injured but he's expected to return at the end of September after having a knee operation in the summer.

Garry Monk and Dennis Lawrence are also still out with injuries.

With Kevin McLeod completing his move to Colchester, Jackett has the choice to play Williams on the left wing with Austin likely to start at left back.

Player to watch: Lee Trundle

I think he'll be the key to getting a 3rd consecutive win Friday night. He scored 2 against Doncaster 2 weeks ago and hopefully he can do the same tomorrow.

Yeovil have started this season far much better than the last. At this stage last year, they were bottom after failing to win in their first 6 games.

They're 2 positions higher than us in 9th with 1 more point. They've drawn 2, won 2 and lost 1.

The Swans are finally getting into form, winning their last 2 league games, scoring 3 and conceding 0.

In our Prediction League, 18 people have predicted a home win, with 1 person predicting a draw. No one has yet to predict a defeat for the Swans.

If you haven't yet predicted, please do so at I think it'll be a close game but we're starting to pick up some form and with Trundle back, I think we can snatch a close win. 2-1 win.
