Huddersfield Town are back at home in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday 12 November when we welcome Swansea City to the John Smith’s Stadium, 3pm kick-off.

The Terriers go into this game hoping to build on their 1-2 away win at QPR on Tuesday 8 November.

Swansea City will be looking to go into the World Cup break with a win after they drew 2-2 away against Birmingham City on Tuesday 8 November.

THE OPPOSITION

This is Swansea City’s fifth season in the Championship since they were relegated from the Premier League after the 2017/18 season, following their seven year stay in the top flight.

Russell Martin was named Head Coach of the Swans in August 2021, just before the start of the Sky Bet Championship 2021/22 season, on a three-year contract. Swansea finished 15th in the league after his first season in charge.

Swansea City currently sit eighth in the table, after having won one, drawn three and lost one of their last five games.

ONES TO WATCH

Ryan Manning

The defender arrived at Swansea from QPR in October 2020, on a three-year deal, and made 21 appearances in his first season. Before joining Swansea, the 26-year-old already had a wealth of Championship experience, making 87 league appearances with QPR before going on loan with Rotherham United. This season, Manning has played 18 games, scored three goals, and made two assists.

This season, Cooper has made 17 appearances, scored three goals, and made one assist.
