After two defeats this week, Swansea City will be hoping to end it on a high as AFC Bournemouth visit the Liberty Stadium on Friday night.
Kenny Jackett: " With a third of the season left it's up to us to grab the league by the scruff of its neck by putting a good run together.
"I didn't think we deserved to lose by the odd goal at Northampton or Peterborough, but that's in the past and it's vital we bounce back with a win tonight.
"If we play with passion, enthusiasm and quality, I know our fans will play their part by getting behind us like they did against Millwall and drive us on to victory.''
Captain Darren Pratley is expected to return to the side after missing the last 2 games with an ankle injury.
Andy Robinson and Izzy Iriekpen should also make returns after injuries while Britton is available again after a 1 match ban.
Kristian O'Leary and Thomas Butler look set to miss out however as they are both injured.
Seems to be the important figure in the heart of our midfield. No doubt he's had the most man of the match votes at the Liberty Stadium - some of them debatable and while no player has really stood out lately, I think we've missed Pratley in the last 2 games.
Eddie Howe and Karl Broadhurst are only just starting to return back to light training so they'll both miss out.
Neil Young returned from a back injury to play in the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy match while Shaun Cooper (knee) and Marcus Browning (calf) are still out injured.
Striker Leon Best will be unavailable after returning to Southampton after his loan spell came to an end.
The striker has scored 5 goals this season and is the club's top scorer. He also started every league game last season and scored 20 goals.
Bournemouth currently sit in 21st place and haven't won a league game in the last 10, losing the last 4 games.
Swansea have lost their last 2 games 1-0.
We won both our games against Bournemouth last season 1-0.
Bournemouth are struggling badly at the moment and lost 2-0 to Millwall last Saturday, a side we convincingly beat 2-0 the week before.
The Swans really need to get a another good clear win to give them a boost after losing the last 2. I'm going for a 2-0 win.
