Back On The Road Again

The Swans are back on the road again for the second time this week as they look to put the disappointment of the midweek robbery at Stoke behind them with a trip to high flying Middlesboro.
The much changed Swansea side were beaten by a clearly offside goal in midweek giving us two games without a goal since the return from international break and that is something that Graham Potter will want his side to put behind him this weekend.

The last time we headed to the Riverside for a Championship game we won a seven goal thriller on the way to promotion and anything like that again will finish off a testing week for the Swans on a high and maintain a very encouraging start to the season.
That win though was our only one in our last nine league visits to Boro so the odds on us picking up the win are not in our favour especially when you factor in we have failed to score in six of our last nine away matches.
The home side have started the season well and trail leaders Leeds by just one point after eight games and are clearly on of the favourites for promotion under Tony Pulis.
That form is driven by a very settled side with seven players having every league game for them this season compared to the endless changes that we seem to make including more than half a team in midweek.
Despite our encouraging start to the season goals have again been at a premium this season with us finding the net just seven times in eight games, four of them from McBurnie who is almost certain to come back into the starting line up tomorrow. Four of our eight games have also seen us draw a blank which suggests that may of our problems from last year have not yet disappeared despite the better performances.
Celina will miss out again and it was no surprise to anyone to hear this week that Bony has sugared a set back in his return from injury.
Swans official sponsors Bet UK have the Swans at 19/4 to come away with all 3 points with Boro at 5/8 and the draw 51/20.
