After a goalless first leg, Swansea City host Sheffield Wednesday at the Liberty Stadium for Tuesday’s FA Cup fifth round replay.
The Swans are at risk of relegation from the Premier League as they are back in the bottom three after Saturday’s 4-1 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion ended a five-match unbeaten streak.
‘We had a bad day at Brighton because we made one or two mistakes,’ said Swans boss Carlos Carvalhal, after what was just their second defeat in the 13 matches since he took over.
‘We gambled in the game and we lost the gamble. But we don’t lose our abilities, either individually and collectively, because we have lost one game.
‘One tier down in the Championship and the Owls aren’t faring much better, entering the match after back-to-back defeats against Millwall and Aston Villa, and have only won once in their last 10 league fixtures.
‘We want so much to come into the next round,’ said Wednesday boss Jos Luhukay.
‘This is a hard game. We must have a lot of passion.’They are the favourites but we will go there to make the best game we can. We must be with 100% focus and concentration.’
Swansea City – Leon Britton is a slight doubt but is expected to feature. However ruled out include Leroy Fer, Wilfried Bony, Angel Rangel, and Renato Sanches.
Sheffield Wednesday – Liam Palmer is available and Almen Abdi is expected to be fit as well, but Fernando Forestieri is not yet ready to return to action.
Matt S says: Taking into account I think the Swans will be too strong for the Owl’s who are on a dismal run in the Championship after being early promotion contenders.
