Play-Off Chasing Swansea City Host Sheffield Wednesday
Match Preview: Swansea City v Sheffield Wednesday
Graeme Cooper’s side starts the weekend in eighth place, just four points behind Cardiff City.
Rhian Brewster’s deflected free-kick rescued Swansea a point at Millwall in midweek. But it means that the Swans have only won twice in their last 11 league matches.
With the Swans still to face the likes of Leeds United and Nottingham Forest after their game this afternoon, they cannot afford to drop any more points if they are to reach the play-offs.
Andre Ayew has been Swansea’s main man this season. The Ghanaian has scored 15 times this term, and also has six assists.

Sheffield Wednesday have been on a dismal run since January and the top-six looks all but out of Garry Monk‘s sides reach, with them being in 13th position, nine points off Cardiff City.
The mood at Hillsborough hasn’t been helped by the ongoing case into whether the South Yorkshire side will be docked points for financial misconduct.
The Swans recently said farewell to Jefferson Montero, who departs the club after his contract ran out on June 30.
It’s positive news for Sheffield Wednesday; they have no injuries for their trip to South Wales.
