    Swansea v Huddersfield

    I've almost given up on us challenging for a play off spot, yet others are faltering above us in the table. We are 5 points adrift of 6th spot, a good run could see us catch up. We have to tighten up at the back though and stop conceding silly goals. Rodon makes a welcome return after missing last weeks defensive shambles at Hull. Hopefully vdHoorn isn't far behind to resume the central defence partnership that did so well the beginning of the season when we were riding high in the table.

    Well Rodon and Hoorn will be gone in the summer unless we go up, which is highly unlikely.
    Up and coming youngsters it will be next season then. Most Championship sides have big experienced players so it will be a tough ask.
    As you say roll on the time when Rodon and Hoorn are back playing together to shore up our defence.
    Today Rodon returns with either Guehi, Wilmot, or Cabango partnering him, I would go for Wilmot.

    Huddersfield drew 1-1 at Derby last time out and this will not be an easy match.
    There is attacking flair and goals in this team but we have to make sure it’s not at the expense of conceding.
    All successful teams have a solid defence, get that right today and we can get back on track.
    Cooper has issued a rallying cry to the fans to get behind the team but we have to see the players giving us something to cheer about first.
    Maybe a poor attendance today as we compete with the rugby international game Wales v France which starts at 16:45, although the club has said the rugby will be shown on the tv’s in the concourses and lounges after our match finishes.

    Swans 3 Huddersfield 1. A crowd of over 15k today as we competed with the rugby. A deserved win in the end. We ran the show first half and should have had more than the one goal. Second half Huddersfield came more into it and equalised and I thought here we go again, but Fulton added to Ayew’s first half strike heading in from a Grimes corner, and Garrick made sure of the points running onto a great through ball from Gallagher, and rounded the keeper to fire home..
    Kalulu was red hot on the wing today but unfortunately got injured.
    Routledge is out for ten days and missed this match, so too is Dyer. It’s unclear on Kalulu’s injury.
    A much better performance then and a first win in six as we leapfrog over Cardiff and Millwall in the table. Preston won so the gap is still 5 points on 6th position and the last play off place.

    If only we hadn’t dropped so many points at home we’d be up there with Leeds and WBA!

    The best we’ve played in the first half for a while with a tap in from Kalulu’s cross by Ayew.
    Not so good second half as we sat too deep. Huddersfield scoring 1-1 woke us up and we soon retook the lead 2-1 Fulton and scored a third Garrick 3-1.
    A lot more fight in the side today with the high pressing of Huddersfield and pace from Kalulu on the wing, worked a treat.

    Both centre-backs had good games, left Rodon, right Cabango, and looked much more solid than the Hull partnership.
    Star of the show was Kalulu who looked dangerous every time he had the ball and plenty of pace, before a knock made him go off, maybe precautionary.
    Tough game at Fulham on Wed and Blackburn next Sat coming up. Hold tight for the rollercoaster ride!
