Huddersfield Town are back in Sky Bet Championship action for their first home game of 2022 on Saturday 15 January, when they host Swansea City; 3pm kick-off.
Town come into the game unbeaten in their last six league matches, with a 1-2 victory away at Burnley in the FA Cup last time out making it seven unbeaten in all competitions.
Swansea will arrive at John Smith’s Stadium having lost their last three Championship games, including a 1-4 at home to Nottingham Forest last time out.
Swansea currently sit 17th in the Championship, with as many as four games in hand following a COVID-19 outbreak within the Club.
Russell Martin’s men had lost three games in a row before the outbreak, losing out to both Nottingham Forest and Reading at home and Middlesbrough away.
The Swans will also be looking to bounce back from FA Cup disappointment last week, where they went down 2-3 to Premier League side Southampton in extra time.
Swansea will be looking for their second victory of the season over Town, where a Joël Piroe goal was enough to earn the Welsh side all three points back in September 2021.
ONES TO WATCH
Cabango joined Swansea City’s Academy from Newport County in 2018. After working his way through the ranks, he made his First Team debut in August 2019. The 21-year-old has made 15 appearances so far this season, helping his side keep seven clean sheets. The defender’s performances have seen him called up to the Wales national team, where Cabango has played three times for Rob Page’s side and was part of the Euro 2020 squad.
The 25-year-old signed for Swansea ahead of the current campaign, following several successful seasons in Scotland with Celtic. So far this season, Ntcham has featured in all but one Championship game for Russel Martin’s side, scoring three times and collecting two assists. The midfielder has represented France at various age levels, with his ability on the ball making him a valuable asset for Russel Martin's style of football.
The forward has made an impressive start to his Swansea career having signed from PSV in July 2021. Piroe has had a flying start to life in the Championship, securing his place as the Club’s top goalscorer having scored 11 times in 21 appearances so far. One of those goals came on his debut in August 2021. The 21-year-old’s ability to convert chances makes him a constant threat to any opposition, so Town’s defense will have to stay switched on to keep him quiet.
Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán gave an update on the fitness of his squad during his virtual press conference on Friday 14 January 2022, which you can watch in full via HTTV below.
