In the last game of three matches in seven days we entertain Reading at the Swansea.com stadium.
They are hovering just above the relegation zone, but their away form is better than their home form, winning three from the last six away games.
They’ve just played two home matches drawing with Forest last Saturday and losing to Sheff Utd on Tuesday night.
We last met away in the Carabao Cup First Round on 10 August where we won 0-3, but Reading fielded a team of youngsters that night. It was Russell Martin’s first win, coming a few days after his first match ended in defeat at Blackburn.
This month they were deducted 6 points due to a breach of EFL rules.
They should be on 23 points, a point behind us, but are now on 17 points and in 20th place.
Veljko Paunovic is in his second season as their manager.
They’ve just signed striker Andy Carroll on a short term deal, he always seems to score against us and usually dominates the aerial battles, so one to look out for.
Swans will be looking for a win to compensate for conceding a late goal against Blackpool last Saturday for the draw and dropping two points.
On Wednesday night they had a comfortable 0-2 win at Barnsley to bring them within four points of a play-off place
