    Stoke City v Swansea City

    Competition - Sky Bet Championship
    Date - 25 January 2020
    Kick off - 3.00pm
    Venue - bet365 Stadium

    Following their deserved 2-1 home victory over Wigan Athletic, next up for Steve Cooper’s Swansea squad is an away match against Stoke City.

    Last Saturday, the Swans returned to the Championship play-off places, coming from behind to beat relegation-threatened Wigan.

    Wigan took an early lead when Nathan Byrne smartly finished a counter-attack.

    Swansea levelled two minutes later as Conor Gallagher set up fellow loanee Rhian Brewster to score his first goal since joining the Swans.

    The Swans pushed for a winner in the second half and Andre Ayew provided it with a cheeky backheel.

    The result lifted Swansea up to fifth place in the Championship, while Wigan remainsecond from bottom of the table, still two points away from safety.

    Two days later, Stoke travelled to the Hawthorns to play top of the table, WestBrom.

    Since their first meeting on Christmas Day 1925, the Swans and Stoke have played each other on 73 occasions, with Swansea winning 23, Stoke winning 29 and 21 draws.

    In the reverse fixture at The Liberty in October, Stoke ran out 1-2 victors, despite the Swans taking an early lead courtesy of an Andre Ayew tap in

    Turning to Saturday, despite both sides needing 3pts, I’m going for a 1-1 draw. <cheers>
