    Swansea v Preston

    It’s very sad to see the demise of Swansea after such a fine season, where they’ve fallen at the final hurdle. The way they are playing at the moment is relegation form, make no mistake, and fans are wondering just where the next win is coming from.
    Unforgivable tactics by the coach in the latest defeat, matching Birmingham’s head tennis, instead of passing our way through their big defenders, not changing formation to counteract their high press, not using subs until too late, then playing out for the draw and caught in injury time with the second penalty.
    Monday we go again at home to Preston, another side in trouble at the bottom of the table and another opponent with a new manager to uplift them.
    Will Cooper finally start Whittaker up front and rest Lowe, who hasn’t scored in 16 games? Will he use another formation as every team now knows how to high press us and stop our wing backs? Will he rotate the squad this time instead of selecting the same weary and unenthusiastic players?

    FT: 0-1 (Grimes 91 min own goal)
    Today we played one of the weakest teams in the division who were fresh of the back of four straight away defeats.
    We played a different formation 4-3-3 but it was the same weak footballers playing hoof ball who couldn’t pass a ball accurately if they tried.
    We kept on losing possession and the Preston players couldn’t believe their luck.
    At the moment we’re playing like a League 2 side and will not win another match this season with that man in charge.

    We mde hard work of it Jack today at Luton, but its certainly getting interesting now as we're just 1+ points behind Swanny now.
    Preston have indeed been struggling and I was shocked that they snatched the stoppage time winner.

    Acido your team has done so well this season under Valerien Ismael. He has done a remarkable job and turned you from relegation favourites to promotion favourites this season, winning 21 matches since he’s been in charge.
