    It knocks you back a bit with a result like Huddersfield. Ours at The Liberty wasn't the same because we didn't expect much anyway, yours was more like when we got done over by Luton. But as has been pointed out it's one bad result and Brentford appear to have suffered a major blow up. I see you as our only realistic challenger for the title now. I won't predict as it might jinx you.

    Thanks I still have you in the number 1 slot. My concern is more that Watford are now gaining momentum.

    Yes, realistically it's two from four for the two automatic slots. I think that our lead and your games in hand make us the two favourites.

    Lets hope Woolmer doesn't feel pressurised into making wrong decisions to prove he's not biased against you, due to Cooper's whining. I hope he has more integrity than that.

    He’s more likely to give Coventry all the 50:50s to prove that he’s not going to be biased towards the Swans <cheers>

    Yan Dhanda and Ben Cabango come into the Swansea City side for tonight’s Championship clash with Coventry City.

    Dhanda comes into midfield as Jay Fulton drops to the bench, while Cabango is named in defence as Ryan Bennett misses out with a calf injury.

    The absence of Bennett and Jordan Morris through injury sees Kieron Freeman and Ollie Cooper come onto the bench.

    You can download tonight's official team sheet HERE.

    Freddie Woodman is in goal, with Cabango joining Kyle Naughton and Marc Guehi in defence.

    Connor Roberts and Jake Bidwell are the wing-backs, with Dhanda slotting in alongside captain Matt Grimes and Conor Hourihane in midfield.

    Andre Ayew and Jamal Lowe again lead the line, while former Swan Viktor Gyokeres is on the bench for the visitors.

    Swansea City: Freddie Woodman; Kyle Naughton, Ben Cabango, Marc Guehi; Connor Roberts, Yan Dhanda, Matt Grimes (captain), Conor Hourihane, Jake Bidwell; Andre Ayew, Jamal Lowe.

    Substitutes: Ben Hamer, Ryan Manning, Jay Fulton, Korey Smith, Morgan Whittaker, Paul Arriola, Joel Latibeaudiere, Ollie Cooper, Kieron Freeman.

    Coventry City: Ben Wilson, Leo Ostigard, Kyle McFadzean, Liam Kelly (captain), Maxime Biamou, Callum O'Hare, Dominic Hyam, Tyler Walker, Sam McCallum, Julien Dacosta, Gustavo Hamer.

    Substitutes: Marko Marosi, Michael Rose, Jamie Allen, Viktor Gyokeres, Ben Sheaf, Amadou Bakayoko, Fankaty Dabo, Matty James, Jordan Shipley.

    Referee: Andy Woolmer

    We don’t look strong enough (robust) in the middle of the park .....

    I have a nagging feeling we'll see a tired display but I really hope I'm wrong. Surely a rocket up the arse after Saturday's capitulation.

    I know Dhanda is more of a creative player, but Smith offers us that same did of creativity with added steel.

    Totally agree, we can’t lose this one, the physiological effects then going into Saturdays game could put us on a downward spiral. Anyway let’s be positive :)

    Please look at the Victor thread. Tonight football is irrelevant.
