Swansea vs. N Forest

Swansea vs N Forest

A bumper crowd is expected at the Liberty Stadium as Swansea City take on Nottingham Forest.

With Jackett's side falling down to 8th the league with Doncaster not far behind, it's vital that we pick up some wins in the next few days as we also face Gillingham on Tuesday night.

Forest are expecting to bring around 1,250 fans with them, it probably would have been more hadn't it been for their big FA Cup game against Chelsea next week.

Vital Quotes:

Kenny Jackett: 'We've picked up one point in the last six away from home which is frustrating,''

'It's been even more frustrating because we conceded late goals at both Huddersfield and Bradford which also resulted in two red cards and robbed us of the three points.

'We need to overcome the disappointment by putting together a good, consistent run of victories to take us back up there in a very tight and competitive league.''

Swansea Team News:

Kenny Jackett welcomes back 4 key players tomorrow as suspended trio Alan Tate, Lee Trundle and Ian Craney are all available again.

Also back is Andy Robinson who returns after a back injury.

Kristian O'Leary is out though as he begins serving his 3-match suspension while Darren Pratley, Kevin Amankwaah and Shaun MacDonald are still out injured.

Player to watch: Trundle

Lets hope he's on form tomorrow as we need to get back to winning ways after falling out of the play-off places again.

N Forest Team News:

Luckily for the Swans, winger Kris Commons is out injured for Forest while Sammy Clingan is suspended.

Nicky Southall is back after a suspension and goalkeeper Rune Pedersen should be back on the bench after a thigh injury.

Midfielder Lewis McGugan is also able to play, but with a gum shield as he needed to have tooth put back in place after the Yeovil game.

Player to watch: Grant Holt

The striker has scored 10 goals in the league this season plus 4 others in cup competitions. Kenny Jackett is apparantly back in for the targetman after failing to sign him last year.

Match Facts & Stats

In their last 6 away games, Forest have lost 3, won 2 and drawn 1. Swansea, at home, have won 4 drawn 1 and lost 1 in their last 6 games at the Liberty.

Match Prediction:

It should be a highly entertaining match between two sides competiting for promotion. I think we'll do well to get a draw, but with 4 first team players back, we could snatch a win as Forest are going through a bad patch lately.
