    Huddersfield Town v Swansea City

    Competition - Sky Bet Championship
    Venue - John Smiths Stadium
    Date - 26 November 2019
    Kick off - 19.45

    Following their abysmal performance at home to Millwall which ended in a 0-1 defeat, next up for the Swans is a visit to Yorkshire to play The Terriers.

    Against Millwall, a flat first-half failed to ignite despite late chances at both ends, with man of the match Wallace closest to an opening goal.

    After a period of Swansea pressure in the second half, the Millwall midfielder struck with a powerful, curling free-kick.

    The hosts desperately searched for an equaliser but substitute Borja Baston squandered their best opportunity, lifting a tame effort wide.

    A third win from Rowett's first four games in charge lifted Millwall up to 10th in the Championship table, four points adrift of the play-off places.

    The Swans now occupy the last of those spots, dropping down from fourth after a fourth defeat from their past six home fixtures.

    Whilst the Swans were losing to Millwall, Marc Roberts' header cancelled out Fraizer Campbell's opener as Birmingham City earned a point at Huddersfield.

    Campbell scored his second goal of the season in the 55th minute after latching on to a through ball from Trevoh Chalobah.

    The Blues equalised with 12 minutes left when Roberts met a flick-on from a corner to head past Kamil Grabara.

    The Terriers' goalkeeper then made a smart stop to deny substitute Alvaro Gimenez a late winner.

    The draw left Huddersfield three points above the relegation zone, with Birmingham 14th in the table.

    The Swans have played the Terriers on 54 occasions, winning 15, drawing 15 but losing 24.

    Arguably the most important and memorable meeting between the teams was the Autoglass Trophy Final in 1994 which saw the match finish 1-1 at full time, with the Swans winning 3-1 on penalties



    Turning to Tuesday evening, Cooper has a big job on his hands to galvanise the squad after Saturday. Hopefully, the Manager will make changes and the Swans will maintain their unbeaten away record. 1-1 <cheers>

    We're much better away, so to keep the roller coaster going, 2 - 3.

    Swansea City head coach Steve Cooper makes four changes for the midweek Championship clash at Huddersfield.

    Connor Roberts, Jay Fulton, Kristoffer Peterson and Borja Baston all come into the starting line-up as Kyle Naughton, George Byers, Nathan Dyer and Wayne Routledge drop out of the starting line-up.

    Freddie Woodman starts in goal, with Roberts joining Mike van der Hoorn, Ben Wilmot and Jake Bidwell in the back four.

    Fulton partners captain Matt Grimes in the centre of the park while Peterson comes in on one flank and Andre Ayew drops onto the other having started the last four games up top.

    Bersant Celina continues at number 10, while Borja will lead the line.

    On the bench there are recalls for Barrie McKay and Yan Dhanda.


    Swansea City:
    Freddie Woodman; Connor Roberts, Ben Wilmot, Mike van der Hoorn, Jake Bidwell; Jay Fulton, Matt Grimes (captain); Andre Ayew, Bersant Celina, Kristoffer Peterson; Borja Baston.

    Subs: Kristoffer Nordfeldt, Kyle Naughton, Ben Cabango, George Byers, Yan Dhanda, Barrie McKay, Sam Surridge.

    Baston looks like Leigh Halfpenny in the headgear.

    Well lets hope he puts half a shift as Leigh does and I'll be reasonably happy.
