Swansea City will face fellow promotion rivals Nottingham Forest on Saturday at the Liberty Stadium.
Nottingham Forest are expected to bring around 2000+ supporters with them to the Liberty Stadium which will add to the match day atmosphere come kick off .
Last time the two sides met in the leauge last season at the Liberty Stadium the game finished in a disappointing and uninspired goalless draw.
Nottingham have a spate of injury problems with 7 first team players out of contention including the constant threats of Tyson and Agogo.
The Swans will still have to over come a strong Forest side with former target Grant Holt and Kris Commons.
Spoke On the Official Site:
|''It will give us a clear guideline to how strong this division will be this season,'' explained Roberto. 'It will be a huge test for us, but one the players and fans are looking forward to.|
At the end of the day, you get the same amount of points whoever you play. We set our standards at Oldham and if we perform like that on a regular basis then we'll get the points total we require.'
The players are ready and up for the challenge. Some of our new lads haven't played to a packed Liberty Stadium before, but they know what to expect having witnessed our fantastic support at Oldham and in the friendlies.
You can sense the excitement and buzz around the city and I'm sure our fans will back us again from the first to last minute because their support will be vital.'
|'It's just one of those things - sometimes it goes for you as a team and sometimes it doesn't. But we're keeping the ball well, we're making our opposition work and eventually the opportunities will come and we'll score goals.'|
Swansea City will still be without Darren Way and Owain Tudur Jones. Alan Tate picked up a knock against Walsall midweek but should be fit to play.Paul Anderson is a doubt after he picked up a hamstring injury on Tuesday.
Jason Scotland with two goals in two games he will be a threat to the Forest goal.
Nottingham Forest will be without 7 first team players with Nathan Tyson , Ian Breckin new signing Arron Davies , Chris Cohen ,Lewis McGugan and Junior Agogo all out of contention.
Kris Commons will be a constant threat in the midfeild for Nottingham Forest. He signed a new deal with The Reds in pre season and scored 13 goals from midfield last term. His forward threat must be contained if Swansea are to get a result.
This is the 51st meeting between the two sides since 1925. Nottingham have won 21 games over 20 wins by Swansea City.
