    A few changes to rest players: Matthews for Solly, Field (had a great cameo on Saturday)  for Pratley.  Oztumer for Williams.  Be a tough game.  Heart says 2-1, head says 1-1.
    I agree. I think Oztumer would be perfect for this game and he is a goal scorer which we certainly need.

    Is the game going to be on Sky on the red button? I heard midweek championship games can be watched live? 
    I'm away with work, but will try to squeeze in watching the game if so
    Indeed it is mate.
    Don't work too hard and enjoy the game.

  • Matthews will be desperate to feature, considering he's actually from Swansea!
  • How come we play Wednesdays  now instead of Tuesdays

    Red button on sky 

    That's annoying as i don't have sky.
  • does the red button work for virgin tv?
  • Sorry folks who follow matchday thread, and this is getting regular now we are in the championship, but because Swansea and Fulham games are on Sky, i will not be doing my contribution to the matchday thread as I will be sitting in a comfortable chair, with a beer in hand and relaxing (hopefully), and watching the games on Sky. Plus, the chair is more comfortable during bum squeaking time  :) I hope someone or more than one will keep you up to date

    I don’t get this resting players crap. If they are fit, played in the last game and played well then they should play again. 
    The days when players would drop into the pub before the game are over. Modern players, even in the second tier, are scientifically trained and prepared. It is the difference between race-horses and cart horses. They have to be at least 95% fit to play however good they are. Some cannot achieve that with three games in eight days.
  • Very interested to see how Bowyer rotates the team for this one. I’d personally change both full-backs, start with Aneke instead of Williams and swap Pratley for Field. Just to freshen things up before another tough trip to Fulham
  • I thought this was meant to be live on sky?
    It will be... Red Button

    If you dont have that option you will be able to purchase a Match Pass on VP for £10 if your in the UK or £5 if your outside the UK
    So does that still work with a now tv pass? Maybe it’s better to buy a week one because Fulham is on at the weekend too

  • Really hope Oshilaja gets the nod at right back. Admittedly I've only seen him play there once but was very impressive going forward against Forest, which, given Sage's comments about Swansea being weak from crosses, might be important if we play the diamond formation again.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see Aneke start either. Definitely deserves a start in one of this week's three matches.

    Could it be Oshilaja at RB and Matthews at LB, as Solly and Purrington may need to be rested. Not ideal but long old Season and Purrs is playing with a calf strain and Chris should not play 3 in a week.
    That is something I was considering as well but left it out due to it meaning a lot of changes in defence, especially if Pearce was to play instead of Sarr.
    Oshilaja has played all along the back line so if a change is to be made would it not be better to give Williams his debut in his position of right back and put Osi over on the left?
    Bowyer won't be thinking that simplistically, I bet.

    First of all he'd have been studying several match videos to read Swansea's tactics and gameplan, their player strengths and weakness both as a team and individual players.

    Based on that, he'll devise his own game plan and pick his players accordingly, taking into account it's the middle game of 3 matches in a week. 

    Like you, I'm a firm advocate of playing a player in his specialist position. But it will depend on Bowyer's formation and gameplan. I bet he already knows what he's going to do.

    Well accept Derby.
  • Is it possible to schedule to record off the red button on sky Q please?

    Don’t think so mate

    Because we looked extremely fresh and fit when we faced Brentford after the back to back Barnsley / Nottingham Forest games didnt we

    Do you really think it wise to play the same players against Leeds / Swansea / Fulham, especially when Bowyer said that the players were running on fumes around 80mins on Saturday
    And a number (William's, Cullen, Gallagher, Bonne, Leko) who all appeared to pick up knocks or strains on Saturday.
  • Can you get this on sky go?
