Swansea City are back in league action this Saturday after last weekend's 3-1 away win at Newport in the first round of the FA Cup.

A victory at Vale Park tomorrow could possibly put us in the automatic promotion places providing that results go our way.

Vital Quotes:

Port Vale Team News:

Boss Martin Foyle looks set to name an unchanged side tomorrow for the fourth consecutive time despite the return of left back Jason Talbot after suspension.

Leon Constantine and Akpo Sodje lead the line again for Vale, a strike partnership that have scored 17 goals between them so far this season.

Player to watch: Leon Constantine

Constantine has scored 11 goals this season so the Swans' defence have a busy day's work ahead of them.

Swansea Team News:

Kenny Jackett looks set to give new loan signing Marcos Painter his debut at left back in the absence of Tom Williams.

He may well receive a bad reception tomorrow as he turned down a move to Port Vale in favour of the Swans.

Midfield trio Darren Pratley, Owain Tudur-Jones and Darren Way are missing so Tate will move up into midfield with O'Leary and MacDonald competing for the other place in the centre.

Despite being arrested last Saturday, Iriekpen should keep his place in the starting line-up along with Dennis Lawrence at the back.

Player to watch: Lee Trundle

The obvious choice I suppose. He told Sky Sports' pro life feature on their website that he's feeling like his 'old-self'. He got back to scoring ways in the FA Cup last week, opening the scoring after 6 minutes in the game at Newport.

Match Facts & Stats

Port Vale started their season off well but after a poor run of form recently, they sit in 13th place.

Vale haven't won at home in the league since September 9th so knowing our luck with bad runs like that, Vale will break that bad run tomorrow!

Swansea sit in 6th place, hoping a win will take them up to 2nd in the table.

Match Prediction:

Despite Vale's poor home form, it'll be a tough game and we're always have a habbit of ending teams' bad runs.

Hopefully it won't be the same story tomorrow, I think we'll grab a 1-0 win.
