Swansea City’s Form
Swansea has been consistently losing in their recent matches, with Martin always claiming that his team deserved better. Despite being eight points ahead of the relegation zone, Swansea has only won three of their last 21 games, losing seven of their last nine matches. Although they may have enough points to avoid relegation, it's important to note that they were once contenders for promotion. While it's uncertain whether Martin and Swansea will part ways, he believes that the team still has room for improvement. The upcoming games against Bristol City and Cardiff City, before the international break, will be crucial for Martin's future with the team.
Swansea City’s possible starting lineup
Cullen, Piroe, Cooper, Ntcham, Grimes, Cundle, Manning, Wood, Cabango, Darling and Fisher
Bristol City’s Form
Bristol City traveled to Swansea earlier this campaign and emerged victorious with a 2-1 scoreline after extra time in an FA Cup encounter on January 17. Despite reaching the fifth round of the competition, their impressive form in the Championship has garnered attention, having accumulated 20 points from 12 matches since the beginning of the year. During these games, they have only conceded 10 goals. However, their recent 1-0 loss to Luton Town has left them 12 points behind the playoff positions, making it highly improbable for them to qualify. With only nine games remaining, Nigel Pearson's team will aim to snap their four-match winless away run.
Bristol City’s predicted lineup
Wells, Mehmeti, Weimann, Cornick, King, Scott, Dasilva, Pring, Vyner, Sykes and O'Leary
