Swansea’s win against Middlesbrough was extremely lucky and had a lot of controversy. We played really poorly and we did not deserve the win at all. Another last minute penalty won us the game however a goal which was disallowed for Boro sparked the most controversy because of a ‘foul’ by Yannick Bolasie just before Marc Bola hit a wonder strike that was not allowed to stand as a goal. It may have been controversial but it’s 3 points nevertheless and our focus now has to be Blackburn where our performance must improve after a really poor showing on Saturday even though we secured the win.

Fatigue is clear however we don’t have extreme strength on the bench to rotate the squad. Blackburn haven’t kept up with their impressive start to the season and are now 15th in the table. This won’t be an easy game and even though I’ve said it so many times, we have to step up our game. I can’t see much happening in the match because our performances haven’t shown enough quality as of recently but we know that every point is crucial because we only have 1 game in hand on Brentford now after having 2 for a long time so there is no room for error if we really stand a chance in achieving 2nd place. I’m not extremely confident but I have to put full faith in the boys and my prediction is Swansea 1-0 Blackburn


A dramatic ending saw Swansea pick up all 3 points again on Saturday at home to a resilient Middlesbrough. Andre Ayew’s double was enough for the swans to win the game. But this was not without its controversies, early in the first half Middlesbrough had a goal disallowed that should have stood and it must have been bitterly disappointing when the swans took the lead in the 97th minuet from the spot for the second time in 72 hours. I think it’s fair to say that the slump is over after back to back wins last week over Middlesbrough and Stoke that saw the swans climb to 3rd after results in other games. They have the opportunity to move into second tonight as they play one of two games in hand over Watford and move five points above Brentford. The hosts this evening enjoyed a first win in 6 on the weekend after 6 loses in a row , they looked impressive on Saturday despite missing Adam Armstrong through injury. They have young Liverpool star Harvey Elliot on loan and he has shone

For them this season. The hosts will be missing main man Adam Armstrong once again.

The swans will be boosted by the return of Ryan Bennet to the back line tonight , he has been pivotal to the swans defensive success this season.


The swans should carry on with their impressive form as of late and win tonight , I won’t be easy as Blackburn are a good side that are respected in this league.

2-0 Swansea


I think that rovers will come into this game with a lot of confidence after a convincing win against Millwall on Saturday. Rovers fans were pleased with the performance from tyrhys dolan, who came in for an injured Adam Armstrong.

Rovers played a 4,3,3 against Millwall with trybull in the middle, slightly deeper than dack and Buckley with Dolan playing striker, a new position which was concerning before the game. I think rovers will play a 4,3,3 again this week and I think Swansea will play a 3,4,1,2.

After a brilliant win from rovers and a few unconvincing games for Swansea I think rovers have a great chance of picking up 3 points. For my final score I’m going to predict that rovers will just take this game with a 2-1 win to rovers.
