Swansea City face their biggest game of the season so far tomorrow as Bristol City arrive at the Liberty Stadium.
A bumper crowd is expected as the Swans hope to go ahead of their rivals in league up to 4th place.
Bristol boss Gary Johnson said: 'There is an intimidating atmosphere at Swansea, although I would say that a lot of clubs are also now saying that about Ashton Gate.
'We have to be thoroughly professional and not make rash decisions or rash tackles that give the home fans a chance to scream and shout at the officials.
'We will need to stand up and defend properly from the first whistle. Then we must enjoy attacking, enjoy defending and ultimately enjoy taking all three points.'
Kenny Jackett will have skipper Darren Pratley back after he returns from injury and he could be joined by new signing Ian Craney who joins on loan from Accrington Stanley.
Willy Gueret is also back from injury after missing last Saturday's game at Port Vale.
Alan Tate could return to his right back role while Iriekpen may still be on the bench following his arrest a fortnight ago.
Marcos Painter looks also set to make his home debut for the Swans after the left back joined on a month's loan from, Birmingham City.
Supposed to be a highly rated prospect for us and a £150,000 fee has been agreed apparantly.
Gary Johnson is hoping to have Steve Brooker on the bench after the midfield missed the last two months with injury.
The Bristol City boss has a near full squad to choose from with only David Noble and Scott Brown being doubts and Louis Carey out suspended.
The former Yeovil striker joined up again with Gary Johnson at Bristol and is continuing to score a consistent basis, he did for the Glovers and he's currently City's top scorer with 6 goals.
Swansea City fans won't forget last season's 7-1 thrashing against Bristol City as Kevin McLeod got a hat-trick that day to embarrass our opposition.
Tomorrow will be a totally different story though. Gary Johnson has transformed what looked like a League 2 side last year as they are competing where they are capable of - in the top 6.
Whoever wins tomorrow will gain a huge advantage for the play-off places and improve their chances of a place in the top 2.
I think with new players, a big crowd and a few wins under our belt I think we can get all three points. Swans to win 2-1.
