Huish Park

Swansea City will be looking to score their first goals at Huish Park tomorrow as Martinez's side take on Yeovil Town.

The Swans visit the League's 8th placed side on the back of two excellent away wins at Leyton Orient (5-0) and Bournemouth (4-1).

The jack army will also back the side with a strong support of nearly 1,500.

Vital Quotes:

Yeovil boss Russell Slade:

'I know it will be perhaps our strongest test of the season. They are scoring plenty of goals, particularly on their travels, with five at Orient and four at Bournemouth and we know that will be difficult.

In my opinion they are the most accomplished team in the league. They are going very well and they've got a nice balance about them.'


Roberto Martinez:

'It's a huge challenge for us to go there and try and change all that,'

'It's not going to be easy, but we are ready.'

Yeovil Town Team News:

Lee Morris (knee), Marvin Williams (ankle), Terry Skiverton (groin) and Marc Bircham (hamstring) are all sidelined with long-term injuries.

Also missing will be Lee Peltier who serves a one-match ban.

Marcus Stewart could also return after an injury.

Player to watch: Owusu

Lloyd Owusu is the club's top scorer this season with 4 goals in 12 League starts.

He has had previous spells with Brentford, Sheffield Wednesday and Reading and has scored consistently throughout his career.

He joined the Glovers this season and has quickly proved to be a good addition to the squad.

Swansea City Team News:

Roberto Martinez has a near full team to choose from but is likely to name an unchanged side from 2 weeks ago.

Darren Way is the only player who is sidelined with an injury and he is still waiting for the chance to face his former club.

Martinez will have the luxury of a strong bench with the likes of Duffy, Britton and Robinson all fully fit again.

Player to watch: Feeney

The on-loan Cardiff City striker has scored 4 goals in the last 3 games and is our most consistent goalscorer as of late.

I think we'll get our first win at yeovil today. we've looked the best team in the league away from home recently and that should continue today. we'll have the freedom to play and counter attack and cause problems. plus we have some great subs who can come on if we need to change things.
