Millwall Vs Swansea

Swansea City will be looking to make it 4 consecutive away wins as they travel to face Milwall at the New Den

Roberto Martinez's side were held to a 1-1 draw against mid table Gillingham at the Liberty Stadium on friday night. In a game marred with controversy Referee Stuart Atwell came under a barrage of complaints from Swansea Fans in the stands ; after his failure to award two penalties early on in the 2nd half and the dismissal of Warren Feeney in the first.

On their travels Swansea have scored 11 goals in the previous 3 away fixtures and have broken the club's Huish Park curse along with it.

It is not the first time these two sides have met this term Millwall were the visitors to the Liberty Stadium in the 2nds round of the Johnston's Paint Trophy. The Swans ran out 3-2 winners after coming from behind twice.

The Lions last month dismissed then manager Willie Donachie after the clubs slump into the relegation zone. Caretaker manager Richard Shaw has been at the helm since Donachie parted company with the New Den outfit.

Vital Quotes:

Roberto Martinez:

"It's going to be a hard place to go. It's always a hostile place, and I remember I got the first defeat as a manager there."

"They had a very difficult start of the season but I would say it's one of the hardest places in League One to go and get a result.

"You can see they got some talented players and showed some talent with the youngsters and it's going to be a completely different scenario altogether.

"What we are looking for is the level of performance.

"We will try to get that consistency and continuity that we got in the second half (against Gillingham) and I'm sure the result will follow."

Millwall Team News:

Caretaker manager and former Swansea striker Colin West has a number of injuries to deal with for Tuesday night's game.

Chris Hackett, Dave Brammer, Ryan Smith, Danny Spiller, Tom Brighton, Preston Edwards, Mark Phillips, Neil Harris, Danny Senda and Will Hoskins are all sidelined.

Defender Zak Whitbread will be on the bench despite not being fully fit after an injury.

Bryan Hodge has arrived on loan from Blackburn so he'll be able to feature and striker Ben May is back after returning from his loan spell at Scunthorpe.

Swansea City Team News:

Swansea City will be without Ferrie Bodde as he is currently struggling with a hip injury he sustained in training last week.

Despite picking up his fifth booking of the season on Saturday, Pratley's one match suspension won't come into effect until Saturday's FA Cup game at Billericay.

Striker Warren Feeney will start his 3 match ban after picking up a straight red card against Gillingham. Whilst long term injury stricken players Owain Tudur Jones and Darren Way are also sidelined.

Player to watch: Paul Anderson

The on loan Liverpool winger has been one of the consistent performers for Swansea City so far this term.

Anderson is the clubs joint top goal scorer with 7 goals this season; the last against Gillingham. Anderson will be a handful for the Millwall wing backs.

i can't see millwall winning this one. they've looked poor recently and we should get back to winning ways, we need to.
GThomas
Gillingham looked poor as well and look how it ended up. So let's stay humble and trust boys they can get a good result despite having Bodde and Pratley sidelined.
Czech_Jack
well pratleys not sidelined...but bodde is. and i think we missed him despreatly on friday...he is the best player in this squad. i think O'leary should play...that will allow pratley to do moreof his forward runs he loves

Should be an easy three points against a poor Millwall side at the moment.
dazza71
Hopefully we can run out winners and the loss of Feeney and Bodde will not be too noticable and cost us too much.
jack hammers
On paper you could say an easy 3 points. but when a team is struggling at the bottom of the league, they will put up a fight. At some time their luck may change - if it does then I hope it will be after tuesday.
willow

swans11
