Swansea City Preview – Can the Swans return to winning ways on home turf?

For the second season running, Steve Cooper has guided Swansea City to the Championship play-offs. The Welsh side have remained consistent all season, winning half of their 44 Championship games.

Swansea made sure of their play-off berth at Reading last weekend. Despite going a goal down at the Madejski Stadium, City bounced back to get the point that they needed. Swansea can finish as high as third this term.

Our betting prediction:
Swansea win & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1306 GMT, Friday 30 April)

Swansea are usually strong at the Liberty Stadium, but Cooper’s men are without a win in four at home. Since a 2-1 triumph over Middlesbrough in early March, City have taken one point from a possible 12 at the Liberty.

Derby County Preview – Can County cause an upset in Wales?

Derby County’s woeful form has put them bang in trouble with just a couple of matches to go. The Rams are in 21st spot, four points clear of Rotherham United and Sheffield United – the Millers also have a game in hand.

If Rotherham lose and Derby win this weekend, Rooney’s troops will be a Championship club next season. However, the Rams head to South Wales in retched form, losing five in a row. The win over Luton Town on 2nd March is their only victory since February.

Swansea City vs Derby County Betting Advice

Swansea were in fine form at the time, but Derby beat the Welsh team 2-0 at Pride Park back in December. Colin Kazim-Richards’ fourth-minute goal put County in front, with Jamil Jozwiak doubling their advantage just before half time.

Derby are unbeaten in their last seven meetings with Swansea, winning four and drawing three. City’s last victory over the Rams came way back in February 2010.


Key Facts – Swansea City vs Derby County Betting Tip

  • Swansea have drawn one and lost three of their last four at home
  • Derby have won just one of their past 13 matches
  • The Swans booked their place in the play-offs last weekend


Since a 2-0 home success over Luton in early March, Derby have lost consecutive games to Reading, Norwich City, Blackburn Rovers, Preston North End and Birmingham City.

Swansea have also been in poor form of late, but the hosts should get the win on home soil. It could be close on the scoreline, though, so back the hosts to win by one at 11/4.
