After a disappointing FA Cup draw against Horsham , Swansea turn their attentions to league matters tomorrow evening against a struggling Northampton side lying 4 points off the relegation zone.
Cobblers manager Stuart Gray lambasted his squads performance against Walsall in the leuage as lethargic and lacked urgency.
Gray will be looking for a more positive reaction from his players as they try and defy table position and go away with a result at the Liberty Stadium.
Swansea will be looking to consolidate their position at the top of the leauge one summit with tricky ties against Bristol Rovers and Leeds United on the horizon.
Manager Roberto Martinez will also be looking for a good performance as he tries to overhaul the South Wales club's fortunes at home.
Despite only 1 loss at home since September the Spanish tactician has come under fierce criticism from the media and fans alike over the performances at the Liberty Stadium.
Those performances will certainly give his counterpart Stuart Gray some hope of securing some much needed points.
Gray's task has become more difficult as the Northamptonshire based side have only won 1 game on the road all season a 1-0 win at Oldham on the 27th October.
Paul Anderson and Ferrie Bodde are expected to make their returns from injury.
David Knight is sidelined for a futher 2-3 weeks after he sustained an ankle injury in the pre match warm up against Hartlepool last week.
Darren Pratley and Marcos Painter are doubts, both players are suffering with the flu.
Garry Monk is also sidelined after picking up a 5th yellow card.
The former Espanyol B player has come on leaps and bounds since his arrival from Spain.
Bauza has forced himself into the frame after a fine scoring run of form which has seen him net 4 goals in his last 3 starts for the club.
His excellent work ethic and his pressing of opposition players can cause problems.
Stuart Gray has a few selection headaches with two key players ruled out after sustaining injuries in the FA Cup 2nd round tie against Walsall on the weekend.
Defender Jason Crowe has suffered a hip injury whilst Danish Striker Poul Hubertz's long term Achilles problem has reoccurred.
Cobblers Irish Striker Andy Kirk has been vastly influential so far this season which has seen him bag 8 goals in the league so far this term.
His latest strike saw the Sixfeilds stadium outfit earn a FA Cup 2nd round replay
