Swansea City have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 10 goals along the way. They haven’t won at home in the past 2 league games but are are unbeaten in the league by Nottingham Forest in their last 3 matches.

Welshman Steve Cooper moved to Nottingham earlier in this season after 24 months in charge of the ‘Swans’ from 2019 to 2021. He continues to turn Forest’s fortunes around, with his only Championship defeat to date against league leaders Fulham.

The Reds travel to South Wales having not lost in their last 7 Championship games and a pleasing encounter on the eye is expected between two teams who prefer to keep possession. Although, with both Swansea and Nottingham Forest well matched outfits, it would be no surprise if they ended up canceling each other out. A narrow advantage for the visitors can’t also be ruled out.
