Swansea City v Stoke City Competition - Sky Bet Championship Date - 27 October 2020 Kick off - 7.45pm Venue - Liberty Stadium Following their hard fought 1-1 draw at Ashton Gate, where a soft penalty salvaged a point for the hosts, next up for Steve Cooper’s promotion chasing Swans squad is a home match against Stoke City. On Saturday, the Swans unbeaten away run continued but they were left hugely frustrated as Nahki Wells' contentious late penalty salvaged a point for Bristol City. The Robins were heading for a second straight Championship defeat after Jamal Lowe has put Swansea in front early in the second half. But Wells levelled seven minutes from time after Swansea wing-back Connor Roberts was adjudged to have brought down Antoine Semenyo. The draw means both clubs are without a victory in three matches, although Bristol City remain second in the Championship table with Swansea sixth. Swansea are now unbeaten in 10 regular-season games on the road since a 1-0 loss at Fulham in February, yet they were left disappointed they did not take more at Ashton Gate. Whilst the Swans were drawing, Stoke City were holding off a late Brentford rally to extend their unbeaten run to seven games in all competitions. The Potters had seemed set for a comfortable victory on the hour mark when Tyrese Campbell added to first-half goals from Steven Fletcher and James McClean to put them firmly in control. But Marcus Forss pulled one back with a cool finish and added a second in stoppage time to leave Stoke relieved to hear the whistle. The win moved Stoke up to eighth while Brentford, below par until their late revival, slipped to 12th. Since, and including, their first meeting on Christmas Day 1925, the Swans and Stoke have played each other on 74 occasions, with Swansea winning 23, Stoke winning 30 and 21 draws. Stoke did the double over the Swans last season, and in the corresponding fixture at The Liberty in October 2019, Stoke ran out 1-2 victors, despite the Swans taking an early lead courtesy of an Andre Ayew goal: Turning to Tuesday evening, having not won in 3 Championship matches, the Swans will be keen to collect all 3 points and maintain their promotion challenge, whilst Stoke will want to continue their rise up the table. I’m going for a 1-1 draw.
