It's a Liberty Stadium sell out tomorrow as the Swans play their last game of the season against promotion hopefuls Blackpool.
Roberto Martinez and his side will be looking for a huge win if they are to replace Oldham in the play-off zone as they face relegated side Chesterfield.
The Swansea boss has sent Kevin Nugent up to Oldham to send latest scores of the game back to the management team at the Stadium.
Roberto Martinez: 'We have to be aware of the Oldham score,''
'You have to follow that game as it happens, and not just the score. I think you need to know what's happening in the game. Who's on top, who's controlling the game, who's got a chance to get back in the game or what's the tempo.
'I think it's very important every situation is controlled and if we need to go for it we will.
'Everyone is expecting Oldham to win, but sometimes that can work against you.'
'They can't wait for the game and there's been a special feeling amongst them all week.
'Now we have the huge advantage of a sell-out crowd behind us and I can't wait to hear the fans turn up the volume and be our number 12 out there on the pitch.
'You can feel the buzz around the city already and the backing of the fans on Saturday will be vital.
'I hope every Swansea supporter will feel very proud to be a Jack tomorrow - at the beginning and end of the match.
Kevin Amankwaah is likely to return to the starting line-up as Alan Tate misses the game because of a head injury.
Tom Butler (foot) is also out but Martinez should be boosted with the return of left back Marcos Painter (knee).
Scored what everyone hopes will prove to be a valuable goal last week to win the game at Brighton. He's scored 5 goals in 4 games and hopefully he'll continue to improve that tally tomorrow.
Blackpool will also be fired up and looking for a win as they are still competing for an automatic place.
They'll be without Rhys Evans (hernia), Paul Rachubka (hamstring) and Lewis Edge (hand) though, while Chris Brandon is suspended.
Adrian Forbes will be hoping he gets the chance to face his former club tomorrow. The midfielder hasn't exactly earned rave reviews at his new club though and it's unlikely he'll get a starting place tomorrow.
Blackpool have three high scorers in their squad, Morrell (15 goals), Vernon (14) and Parker (12) so the defence could well have their work cut out tomorrow.
First scorer: Trundle (11-2) Duffy & Abbott (13-2)
Swansea are 11-8 favourites to win the game, Blackpool are 15-8 (Betfred).
Swans to win:
1-0 - 7-1 (VCBet)
2-0 - 9-1.
3-0 - 22-1
3-1 - 20-1
