PREVIEW

After the disappointment of the nil-nil draw with Oxford on Saturday, Swansea take a break from league football and start (and finish?) their Worthington Cup campaign against Peterborough at the Vetch tomorrow.

We have had many battles with Peterborough over the past few years and generally we have had the better of them. They have not beaten us in the last six encounters, with us winning three times (all at their place) and drawing the other three (all at the Vetch)

In fact, we have not beaten Peterborough at the Vetch in the last 7 attempts (3 draws, 4 defeats) which is a worrying statistic.

Both Stuart Roberts and Kristian O’Leary are expected to return into the side with David Romo (thankfully on Saturday’s performance!) dropping back onto the bench with Richie Appleby likely to give up his seat for him.

Peterborough drew at home with Cardiff on Saturday and have the always amusing Barry Fry in charge still.

The first round of the Worthy Cup this year is a knockout as opposed to the traditional two legged affair and we could see penalties tomorrow if needed.

The crowd will be down on Saturdays game for two reasons

1. It is the early stage of the Worthy Cup

2. We didn’t perform overly well on Saturday.

So far I have predicted two results and not only have I got the scores wrong, also the result so what do I do this time? Easy, I sit back and say nothing. Oh sod it, Swansea win 1-0 with a Watkin penalty.
