You all know how highly I rate Swansea, read something recently where they were described as the best team to ever play in Division 1, not sure about that, but it is an indication of how good they have been.

They are 11 points clear at the top of the table, have lost just once in 21 starts, unbelievably, to Havant & Waterlooville and just twice in 32 matches, winning an amazing 22 of them, including 11 of their last 12 at the Liberty Stadium.

We should see them at their best tonight, they are motivated to take a lead into the second leg, have a lot of experience of these two legged ties, having several recent playoff appearances to their name and are desperate to make the money spinning final at Wembley, which would be the icing on the cake of a fantastic season.They would also become the first Welsh club to play at the new Wembley, giving them bragging rights over Cardiff City.
MK Dons will of course be similarly motivated, but promotion for them, must remain a priority and it is by no means already assured.

Swansea have offered free admission for under 16's and brought forward the kick off time, which during school holidays in the UK, is sure to produce a very big crowd.

Robert Martinez's side have run rings around defences this campaign, leaving defenders dizzy and not sure which way to turn, this cup is theirs for the taking and they should get one hand on the trophy this evening.

5 points Swansea -1/2 ball 1.80 William Hill or -3/4 ball 1.90+ asian line.

I will be back later with another selection.
