Swansea City vs. Gillingham

Liberty Stadium

2nd November 2007


Swansea vs Gillingham

Swansea City will be looking to go top tonight when they play hosts to Gillingham at the Liberty Stadium.

After winning every game in October, Roberto Martinez and the squad will be looking to extend that form into November and to keep the momentum going.

Gillingham visit Swansea with a new manager in Mark Stimson who takes charge of his first game.

Vital Quotes:

Roberto Martinez:

'Psychologically it is very important we go back to the top,''

'It will send a message out to everyone that we aim to stay right up there.

'It will also put the pressure on a few other clubs when they come to play on Saturday.''

'Gillingham may have had a difficult start to the season, but their league position is not a realistic one,''

'They are a better side than that and capable of getting results against anyone in this league. They'll come here with a side full of experience and nothing to lose.

'They are going to be very dangerous and we will have to repeat the level of performances we've produced over the last month to be successful.''

Swansea City Team News:

Roberto Martinez will be forced to make 1 change from his winning side as Ferrie Bodde will sit out the game with a hip injury he picked up in training.

Tudur-Jones is also unavailable after picking up an injury recently. He'll be sidelined for 2 to 3 weeks.

Player to watch: Jason Scotland

After scoring his goal in 6 games at Yeovil last week hopefully he has regained the form he showed earlier in the season. Lets see if he can add to his tally again tonight.

Gillingham Team News:

New boss Mark Stimpson has a full squad to choose from tonight.

Player to watch: Chris Dickson

Dickson has scored 2 goals in 3 league starts and has also scored a hatrick in a recent Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie.

He scored the winning goal last weekend against Bristol Rovers.

Nice wrong facts in the preview. Our first away win (not win) of the 05/06 season was in January. And our manager is called Stimson.

yeah but we must move on now. I thought we did brilliantly with 10 men in the second half to dominate like we did. The goal was just a matter of time before it came and I really thought we were going to take all 3 points, even when he missed I thought he'd net the rebound.
