Swansea City travel to Stoke on Wednesday
Swansea City travel to Stoke on Wednesday

After a shock loss to Bristol City at the weekend, Swansea City travel to the bet365 Stadium to face Stoke City on Wednesday.

Swansea are currently fourth in the standings, and are four points off the automatic promotion spot. They have two games in hand over Brentford, who currently occupy that spot.

In their last game, Swansea were beaten 3-1 by Bristol City. The Swans took the lead in that game, but were pegged back 10 minutes after Andre Ayew scored the opener from the penalty spot.

Swansea had 70% possession in that game, and 21 shots compared to Bristol City's nine. However, they couldn't make the most of it, as the Robins hit them with late sucker punches.

Stoke, on the other hand, are in 10th place, with 45 points from 33 games. They are currently seven points off the playoff spots, and will hope for a late run of form from this game onwards.

In their last match, Stoke lost 2-1 to Brentford. They took the lead in the opening minute, but the Bees produced a dominant display to run out comfortable winners.
