Huddersfield Town return to action with a second Sky Bet Championship game in four days at the John Smith’s Stadium when Swansea City are the visitors on Tuesday 26 November 2019; 7.45pm kick-off.

Danny Cowley’s side will be looking to go six games unbeaten at the John Smith’s following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Birmingham City.

Fraizer Campbell had put Town ahead but a late Marc Roberts equaliser halted Town’s attempt to get back to winning ways.

The game is the second of two home games in the space of four days before a trip to Bristol City at the weekend.

THE OPPOSITION

The Swans come into the midweek encounter off the back of a 1-0 loss to Millwall at the weekend, following the international break.

Before the break, Steve Cooper’s side had gone three games unbeaten, climbing into the play-off places in the Sky Bet Championship table.

Wins over QPR, Leeds United and Charlton at the beginning of the season prove that Swansea are a strong side who are capable of winning on the road.

It means that the Swans have a mixed record on the road four months into the 2019/20 campaign, having only won at Wigan since those victories.

After 17 games of the Sky Bet Championship campaign, Swansea occupy sixth place in the table with 29 points.

ONES TO WATCH

BORJA BASTON

The former Atletico Madrid man signed with the Swans in 2016, with his first season in the Premier League saw him make 20 appearances. However, only four of them were starts and he was only able to find the net once. That season the Swans were relegated to the Championship with Bastón going on loan to Malaga and Alavés before becoming a regular starter at the Liberty Stadium this season. So far in 2019/20, he has made 14 appearances, including 12 starts which has seen him score six goals and become Swansea’s joint top scorer in the league so far this season.

BERSANT CELINA

Swansea’s number 10 has appeared in every game so far and has started 16 of their 17 games. As well as this, Celina has one assist and two goals. Prior to signing for the Swans, Celina was at Manchester City for six years. Although he can play wide, which has been shown as he has been capped over 10 times for Kosovo, he is happiest in the No. 10 role. Since he joined the Swans in 2018/19, he’s demonstrated his quality throughout, chipping in with eight goals and regular assists across all competitions.

ANDRE AYEW

Ayew joined the Swans for the first time in 2015 and within his first month there he was named Player of the Month having made an immediate impact with three goals in his first four games. The following season, Ayew joined West Ham United and scored his first goal for the Hammers against Swansea. He then resigned for the Welsh Club in January 2018 where he played for a further 12 games and then went out on loan for the rest of the season. However, this season, the number 22 has played 15 out of the 17 games, scoring four goals and providing three assists.
