Swansea vs. Millwall

Liberty Stadium

2nd Oct 2006


Swansea vs Millwall

After two wins last week, Swansea City will be hoping to grab a third when Millwall visit the Liberty Stadium tomorrow.

A third consecutive victory in all competitions would see us move into the play-offs and closer again to the automatic promotion places.

Millwall meanwhile will be hoping to get out of the relegation zone after experiencing a poor start to the season after relegation from the Championship.

Vital Quotes:

Kenny Jackett: 'Millwall is a massive game for us. If we can beat them, the chances are we will go into a promotion place and I think a few people will start to believe, most importantly the players.

We have got to this stage before this season, where before a game people have said that if Swansea can win, they will be in business. We haven't managed to win those games, though, and we've spent most of our time just hovering around the fringes.

But if we can win on Sunday - and hopefully win well - I think my players in particular will break through a barrier. They will start to believe that they can do something this season.'

Willie Donachie: 'Like every team in this League, Swansea seem to be strong and organised with decent players who work hard for each other.

Every team in this division is a hard game, but every team can be beaten. We will go there without fear, but respecting them, and we will be prepared to battle like we have done in our last two away games.

I think that the players have learnt that passion and hard work go a long way. They work hard for each other and we go into every game feeling that we have a chance.'

Swansea Team News:

Kevin Amankwaah is out for 2 weeks with an ankle injury but Jackett should have Akinfenwa available after returning to training this week.

Darren Way is back on the injury list after picking up yet another shin injury while Leon Knight won't be playing as his Swansea career is virtually over.

Player to watch: Lee Trundle

With Leon Knight set to be off, Lee Trundle is the only real goalscorer we have and he'll have added pressure to get us some goals tomorrow. He scored a brace at Chesterfield last weekend and hopefully there'll be more of the same tomorrow.

Millwall Team News:

Paul Robinson, Zak Whitbread, Darren Byfield and Tom Brighton are out injured whilst youngsters Ali Fuseini and Marvin Williams are not travelling down for the game.

Player to watch: Chris Hackett

Quote from Vital Millwall: The former Hearts winger has been increasing influential in recent weeks and capped his resurgence with the winner against Bournemouth last week.

Match Facts & Stats

Millwall will be trying to record their fourth consecutive victory tomorrowfor the first time in 3 years, having gone unbeated in the last four with 3 wins and a draw.
