Swansea vs. Yeovil

Liberty Stadium

JPT: Swansea vs Yeovil

Swansea City play their second cup game in 4 days as they host Yeovil in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Southern Section quarter-final.

Martinez says he wants to win the competition and is excited about the prospect of a cup final at Wembley Stadium.

Vital Quotes:

Roberto Martinez:

'Yeovil are once again going to be very tough opponents,'

'They had a big disappointment in the FA Cup and they will want to get that out of their system really quickly.

'They will be looking forward to coming to the Liberty and trying to get some of their confidence back. I expect a difficult game, but we will be ready.'

'It will be a completely different game here compared to when we went to Yeovil. We will need to adapt because they proved last year that they can be just as good away from home as they are at Huish Park.

'They will be organised and use their experience to stop us playing. Then they will just try to play their game and make it difficult for us.'

Swansea Team News:

Darren Pratley is available again after serving a one-match suspension and Ferrie Bodde should be fit again after a hip injury he sustained in training.

Warren Feeney is still serving a ban and Painter and Robinson are out with foot injuries.

Martinezis likely to name a similar line-up to Saturday's. Bauza should keep his place after scoring a brace in the FA Cup game. Some changes will need to be made however to agree with the 6-player rule the competition insists on.

Tate will be hoping to keep his place at centre back and I'd expect Pratley will return in midfield.

Martinez was also hoping Tudur-Jones would feature but he is still lacking match fitness and will train with the Wales squad instead.

Player to watch: Bauza Mayol

The Spanish striker scored a brace on Saturday and he's finally starting to prove himself. He should have a boost in confidence now and hopefully he can keep his goalscoring mini run going.

Yeovil Team News:

Russell Slade's side suffered a shocking FA Cup upset to the hands of Blue Square Premier side Torquay on Saturday, losing 4-1 to the non-league outfit.

They'll be looking to put things right tonight and will want to avoid a second defeat against the Swans.

Marcus Stewart and Lee Peltier are both doubts for the visitors and boss Slade looks set to make more changes to his side, having made 4 for Saturday's game at Torquay.

Striker Kevin Betsey is no longer available as he returns to Bristol City following his loan spell at Huish Park.

Player to watch: Owusu

Owusu is the club's top scorer this season with 7 goals in all competitions.

Marcus Stewart is also always a handful when we play the Glovers.
