Swansea City fans look forward to another trip to Nottingham Forest as 1,100 fans are set to make the trip North to the City Ground.
We managed to beat Forest 2-1 last year on our travels but with a new manager in charge, they are leading the way at the top of League One as Swansea face their toughest game of the season so far.
'The boys deserved a little more than they have got recently,''
'But we are top; we are there to be shot at and it is a really appetising game against Swansea.
'They did very well last year; they were at the top at Christmas and got to the play-off final.
'Swansea have the ability to purchase players and they will be very strong in the division.'
Forest will be without striker Nathan Tyson but defenders Danny Cullip and James Perch should return as they are expected to pass late fitness tests.
Regarded as one of the most talented left wingers outside the Premiership, Commons was a key figure for Forest last season, missing 10 games because after undergoing surgery.
Only played 2 games this season because of injury but he'll be one of quite a few dangermen we'll need to look out for.
Andy Oakes is set to keep his place in goal after replacing Gueret on Tuesday against Crewe.
Trundle is still out with a hamstring injury while fellow striker Akinfenwa is set to have a late fitness test.
Owain Tudur-Jones and 17 year-old Chris Jones are travelling with the squad after making the bench against Crewe this week.
Kristian O'Leary and Kevin Austin are missing as they both have hamstring injuries.
The striker has scored 7 goals this season and the absent of Trundle hasn't affected us too much really with the form Leon Knight is in at the moment.
Seems to work well with either Fallon or Akinfenwa in a 2-man strike partnership and hopefully he'll add to his goal tally tomorrow!
Last season's fixture ended in a 2-1 win for the Swans, with the fixture at the Liberty Stadium ending in a 1-1 draw.
Forest haven't won for 4 games, but they remain top of the league after an impressive start to the campaign with 4 consecutive victories.
Their last victory was away to Yeovil on the 9th September, they won 1-0.
No doubt it will be our toughest test so far this season but with our opponents not winning in the last 4 and a vast improvement against Crewe this week, I think we can get at least a draw against the leaders tomorrow, I predict a 2-2 draw.
