Roberto Martinez on the Official Site:
|''But we welcome Walsall in the Carling Cup on Tuesday then there's a big game with Nottingham Forest at the Liberty Stadium next Saturday, so we have to pick ourselves up quickly.'|
Martinez Will have a near full strength squad to call upon. There are notable absentees with Darren Way and Owain Tudur Jones still to come back of injury.Garry Monk is expected to feature.
Jason Scotland he is a class act and will prove to be a very tricky customer this season for Swansea City. He is very skilful, strong and powerful and a very good strike rate.
