Swansea City Preview – Another home win for the high-flying Swans?

Swansea City are riding high in third place at present, with the Swans having another stunning season under the popular Steve Cooper. So far, they have won 15, drawn eight and lost only four of 27.

Norwich City lead the way on 58 points, while Brentford sit second with 57 points to their name. Ahead of the midweek matches, Swansea are four points behind second place with games in hand on their promotion rivals.

Swansea to win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1205 GMT, Tuesday 16 February)

Since a surprise 2-0 loss to Derby County at Pride Park on 16th December, Swansea have gone eight league games unbeaten, winning six and drawing two. Last time out in the Championship, City secured a crucial 2-0 win over Norwich, with Andre Ayew and Conor Hourihane netting.

Swansea are an incredibly tough nut to crack on home soil, with just Huddersfield Town and Manchester City winning on their patch this season. Cooper’s men have won nine of their 16 league and cup fixtures at the Liberty. They are the bookies’ favourites to win at home again in midweek.

Nottingham Forest Preview – Can the Reds keep up unbeaten run?

Slowly but surely, Chris Hughton has improved Nottingham Forest. The Reds made a woeful start to their season under Sabri Lamouchi, but recent results have lifted them up to 16th, five points clear of the bottom three.

Since three successive defeats in early December, Nottingham Forest have lost just one of their following 11 Championship matches, picking up five wins and drawing five times. Forest head to the Liberty undefeated in four (two wins, two draws).

Swansea City vs Nottingham Forest Betting Advice

Just last month, Swansea hammered Nottingham Forest in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup. The Swans ran riot at the Liberty, with Liam Cullen and Matt Grimes both helping themselves to braces in the 5-1 romp.

In the reverse Championship match at the City Ground back in November, Swansea edged a tight tussle in the Midlands. Connor Roberts’ brave header on the stroke of half time did the business for City.


Key Facts – Swansea City vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tip

  • Swansea have already beaten Forest twice this season
  • Nottingham Forest have lost only one of their last 11 league games
  • The Swans are unbeaten in eight in the Championship, winning six and drawing two


With both sides in fine fettle, this promises to be a fascinating fixture in Wales. The Reds are sure to give the Swans a good game, but Cooper’s men are a formidable force at the Liberty. With that in mind, take a punt on the Swansea win and over 3.5 goals at 7/1.

Andre Ayew is having an exceptional season at Swansea. The veteran has netted an impressive nine Championship goals so far, including one in City’s vital 2-0 victory over Norwich recently. Ayew is available at 13/8 to score anytime in this one.
