Kenny Jackett will be hoping to win his first league away double-header as Swansea manager when his side take on Huddersfield on Saturday.
Despite a dissapointing start for Huddersfield this season, it'll be a tough game as it's never easy getting a decent result at the Galpharm Stadium.
Kenny Jackett: 'We have not been successful in this situation,' conceded Jackett (right). 'And we're due a good performance and a win in one of these games.
'We've tried every which way - trained them hard, trained them easy, gone on planes, trains and automobiles.
'So far nothing has worked, so we're just doing the normal things this week.
'It's going to be about attitude at Huddersfield.
'A good performance, which will give us the chance to win, is based on what's between our ears.'
'We know it will be tough because Swansea are currently one of the Division's form sides, but we head into the game full of confidence after Boxing Day. Even though the result did not go our way against Tranmere I think everyone could see that we are doing the right things, creating chances, the only disappointment is that we conceded goals from set-pieces and perhaps didn't take our chances when they came.
'We have been working on set-pieces this week, because Swansea have some big players and they are a physical side, so we will have to fight for everything. We did an excellent job at Swansea when we played them in September and won the game with a battling performance and we will have to show the same qualities tomorrow.
Skipper Jon Worthington should keep his place in the despite ahving an ankle injury while Martin McIntosh and Chris Brandon return following suspensions.
Jackson will also decide whether to put Pawel Abbott up front with Andy Booth or stay with Gary Taylor-Fletcher.
Huddersfield's top scorer with 9 goals. He joined Huddersfield on a free transfer from Lincoln in the Summer of 2005.
There's no new injuries for the Swans but Jackett is likely to rotate his side slightly with another game on Monday.
Akinfenwa may come in to replace Fallon while O'Leary, Butler and Williams will be hoping to feature somewhere.
Man of the match at Crewe scoring two goals and seems to be back on form.
The last match played between the two sides was earlier in the season as Huddersfield beat us 2-1 at home ni September.
We haven't won at Huddersfield since 1992 though!
After just missing out on the play-offs last season, the Terriers will be dissapointed that they're only sitting in 17th place this year.
Their home form is poor as they haven't won on home soil since October 14th - 8 home games ago.
I think we'll draw this one 1-1. Huddersfield is a tough place to go despite their position and we'll do well to get a point I think.
