Swansea vs. Milwall

Liberty Stadium

4th September

7.00pm

Swansea Vs Milwall JPT1R

The last time these two sides met at the Liberty Stadium the game was overshadowed with violence after the game which saw Police and so called 'Swansea City Fans' clashing outside the ground. The Club, supporters and Police will hope tomorrow night's game will go ahead peacefully and without incident.

Swansea Manager Roberto Martinez and the Squad Will be looking to bounce back after a dismal performance against Doncaster Rovers on Saturday.

The 2-1 loss was further compounded with the sending off of Ferrie Bodde for unsporting conduct.

Millwall also suffered a 2-1 loss at the weekend at the hands of Huddersfield. Millwall Manager Willie Donachie was optimistic despite The Lions 3rd league defeat of the season. Speaking on Millwall's Official Site the former Scottish International believes his strikers will come good but need confidence.

After the departure of Darren Byfield to Bristol City goals have been hard to come by for Millwall scoring only 2 all season.

Attendance at the game is expected to be low due to the Closure of the North and South Stands.

The match will also kick off 45 minutes earlier than normal.
