There is massive rivalry, some would say hatred, between these two sets of supporters, hence the extraordinary kick off time of 11.15 on a Sunday morning, in the first South Wales league derby in nine years. They did meet at the Liberty Stadium in a Carling Cup tie, two months ago, Swansea won with a deflected goal halfway through the second half. The visitors were VERY physical that night and received six cards, one red, it is difficult to see this being any less intense and tight. Hosts have drawn 44% of home starts, the visitors 55% of away games. Early kick offs are alien to most Football League clubs and teams often take a while to get going, this is super early and I think we will see an extremely slow and cautious opening. Another half time draw for me, between two well matched sides.
