Swansea are looking for their first win of the season

Blackpool host Swansea City at Bloomfield Road in the EFL Championship on Saturday, with both sides having had difficult starts to the season.

Blackpool are currently 13th in the league, having won one and lost one game so far this campaign. Michael Appleton's side will be going into the game off the back of being knocked out by Barrow in the EFL Cup and will look to bounce back with a win against Swansea this weekend.

Swansea, on the other hand, are currently 22nd in the table, having yet to pick up their first league win of the campaign. Russell Martin's side were also knocked out of the EFL Cup at the hands of Oxford United in midweek and will hope to kickstart their season with a win against Blackpool on Saturday.

Both sides will want to win the game to climb up the table and that should make for an interesting matchup.
