Swansea have had a terrible run of injuries this season, every week they seem to have been without half a team.

Tonight they are struggling to find a strike partner for Pawel Abbott, new boss Roberto Martinez, who has 7 points from his 3 matches in charge, may chance the very promising 17 yo Chris Jones.

In other positions they will be boosted by the return of 3 players, that have been missing for several weeks.

Chesterfield parted company with Roy McFarland this week, after 10 games without a win, a run that has seen them tumble into the bottom 4. Lee Richardson has taken temporary charge of the squad and the "new coach" factor, may produce dividends, but I have heard some very negative comments about the attitude of the players.

Despite the shortage up front, the Swans still have a few players who know where the goal is and can move into the play-off zone with a win.

The Liberty Stadium has a special atmosphere for night games and the crowd can help the Welsh team to a much needed win.

Into League 2 very briefly. Peterbrough are an ambitious club and have backing and ideas far in excess of what most teams at this level, can even dream of.

Following a disappointing run, Keith Alexander lost his job and was replaced by Darren Ferguson, Sir Alex's son. He has been allowed to bring in a very sound backroom team and this talented squad, is finally showing what it is capable of.

They have won the last 3, with a 9-0 goal difference and travel to Shrewsbury, who are missing two key defenders. The hosts were being comprehensively outplayed by Macclesfield last week, until a couple of defensive errors, turned the flow of the game and they snatched a point.

4 points Swansea -3/4 ball asian line 1.98.

4 points Peterbrough + 1/4 ball asian line 1.98.

Good Luck.
