Cheltenham vs Swansea

Swansea City will be aiming for another win tomorrow night which will put them into the play-off places.

Roberto Martinez and his side travel to Whaddon Road to face Cheltenham Town, a side with the same record so far this season with 2 wins, 2 defeats and 1 draw.

Kristian O'Leary says he has no regrets over turning down a move to the Robins after a successfull loan spell with the club last season.

Vital Quotes:

Roberto Martinez:

'You need to win games like this if you want to be successful,''

'But it's going to be another tough one.

'We watched Cheltenham on the weekend and they came away with a great 3-2 win at Huddersfield - that's how tough it's going to be.

'But I was pleased with the character we displayed against Carlisle on Friday. I think the rest we had leading up to the game did us good because we were really strong at the end, while Carlisle struggled with the size of the pitch and the pressure we put them under in the last 15 minutes.

'But we will have to adapt our game away from the Liberty, while maintaining our passing style of play - because that's the strength of our squad. We've got to perform wherever we go.''

Cheltenham Team News:

Steve Gillepsie is missing with a hip injury but Jennison Myrie-Williams and Craig Reid should return after missing Saturday's game.

Player to watch: Damian Spencer

The striker has scored 2 goals so far this season along with Finnigan.

The big, strong and powerful forward has spent 5 years at Whaddon Road and he's sure to prove a handful for the Swansea defence tomorrow.

Swansea Team News:

Roberto Martinez will be without midfield duo Ferrie Bodde (suspended) and Joe Allen (ankle).

The likes of Kristian O'Leary and Ian Craney will be hoping to fill in in midfield while Paul Anderson will be hoping for his first start after grabbing the winner on Friday night against Carlisle.

Player to watch: Darryl Duffy

Duffy finally got his first goal of the season on Friday and hopefully this will boost his confidence in front of goal.

I wouldn't be surprised if he nets again on Tuesday night.
