Swansea City Preview – Can the Swans upset the leaders in South Wales?

Like a number of clubs, Swansea City are still very much in the mix for promotion. Before this weekend’s fixtures, the Swans are just four points away from sixth-place Preston North End. With ten matches left, there’s still an awful lot to play for in the Championship promotion race.

However, Steve Cooper’s men have struggled for wins lately. The club from South Wales have picked up just three league victories since the start of the year, though all three of those have come at the Liberty Stadium. Swansea have won only one of their past eight in the Championship.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1600 GMT, Thursday 5 March)

Last time out, Swansea drew 2-2 with fellow promotion hopefuls Blackburn Rovers. The Swans were 2-1 up in injury time, but Bradley Johnson’s last-gasp effort earned Rovers a 2-2 draw at Ewood Park. Since beating Huddersfield Town 3-1 at home, City have taken one point from a possible six.

Avoiding defeat against the league leaders will be first priority for the Swans. However, a win would send out a real signal of intent to their promotion rivals.

West Bromwich Albion Preview – Will the Baggies bounce back with a priceless three points?

West Bromwich Albion crashed to a shock home defeat to Paul Cook’s relegation threatened Wigan Athletic last weekend. Wigan deserved the points at The Hawthorns, with Sam Morsy’s late goal doing the business for the Latics. The Baggies were then beaten by Newcastle United in the Emirates FA Cup in midweek.

Despite last Saturday’s surprise home defeat, West Brom have been in excellent form of late, winning five of their last seven in the Championship. Albion are still top of the table, a point ahead of Marcelo Bielsa’s resurgent Leeds United.
