ONES TO WATCH
Grimes signed for Swansea from Exeter City in January 2015. Following loan spells at Blackburn Rovers, Leeds United, and Northampton Town, Grimes’ breakthrough season for the Swans came during the 2018/19 campaign. The midfielder impressed from the off, scooping four separate accolades in the Club’s end-of-season awards dinner. Last season saw the 26-year-old make 45 appearances, collecting two goals and three assists in the process.
The midfielder joined the Swans from Bristol City ahead of the current campaign. The former Town man scored on his debt for the Club in a 2-1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers. Last season saw the 29-year-old make 20 appearances for Bristol, netting three goals and two assists in the process. Paterson’s first season with Swansea has seen him start every league game so far and bag two goals, including in their 3-3 draw with Luton Town on Saturday 18 September 2021.
The 25-year-old signed for Swansea in October 2020, putting pen-to-paper on a three-year contract. He made his debut for the Club in their 2-0 victory over Stoke City. Last season saw the Republic of Ireland international made 17 league appearances for the Swans. His versatility saw him utilised at left back and left wing back. So far in the current campaign the defender’s made seven appearances, and is still searching for his first league goal.
Long-term absentees Jordan Rhodes, Pipa and Aaron Rowe will all be unavailable on Saturday.
Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán will provide a further update on the fitness of his squad during his virtual press conference on Friday 24 September 2021.
