Swansea have an opportunity to rise six places on Friday night and third place in the Championship would represent a fantastic turnaround after a slow start to the season. The Welsh club were expected to struggle after Roberto Martinez left in the summer, taking Jason Scotland and Jordi Gomez with him, although Paulo Sousa hasn‘t taken long to have the side playing an attacking style of football which has seen them win three of their last four matches at the Liberty Stadium. Their main strength is in defence, with just four goals conceded in their last ten matches.
Derby are having a rough ride this campaign, with manager Nigel Clough having to contend with multiple injury problems. Kris Commons and Miles Addison are still missing for the Rams, who are reliant on Rob Hulse for goals. Although the big striker bagged a brace against Coventry a fortnight ago, his chances might be limited on Friday night. Best odds for the Swansea win is 1.78 at Canbet.
