Match preview

Two clubs with sights firmly set on a bounce-back result for altogether contrasting reasons are set to lock horns at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday, November 5th.

The clash in question will see promotion-chasing Swansea City play host to a Wigan Athletic outfit fighting for their Championship lives.

Beginning with the former, Swansea, since embarking on one of the runs of the season to date in England’s 2nd tier, have been brought crashing back down to earth over the course of the last week.

A stretch of six wins from seven between mid-September and October had seen the Swans climb into the thick of the promotion playoff battle.

However, a 1-1 stalemate with Bristol City last weekend was then followed by an altogether disappointing defeat this past Tuesday night.

Despite racking up almost three quarters of the possession over the course of the 90 minutes, Brad Potts’ first-half strike proved enough to see Russell Martin’s troops put to the sword by Preston North End.

Swansea, in turn, have slipped back down to 8th in the table.

The Swans, as a result, will be desperate for a swift return to winning ways this weekend.

And, in truth, as much looks altogether likely up against a Wigan Athletic outfit in nothing short of free-fall at present.

The Latics have slipped to defeat in each of their last five outings, and seven of their last eight dating back to the beginning of October.

The latest of these came in midweek, in a home meeting with fellow strugglers Stoke City.

Now firmly entrenched in the bottom three, Leam Richardson’s side are quickly being forced to face up to a battle against the drop to the third tier of English football.

We at 101, though, do not envision things getting all that much better for Saturday’s visitors to the Liberty Stadium.

Instead, a Swansea City victory looks a safe bet, come the final whistle in the southwest of Wales.
