Swansea News and Form
Swansea are unbeaten in this season’s Championship, having taken a wonderful W5 L1 record from their six games played. Just before the international break they made a pretty big statement with a 1-0 away win at Leeds. Leeds had been unbeaten before that big clash. So that was a big result for the Swans and it moved them on to a four-match winning streak and it gave them control at the top. Their home form is P3 W3 this season in the division and they have scored at least two goals in each of those wins.
Across the course of the season, the Swans have also taken a total of three clean sheets, so they have things together. Swansea did have a very good finish to the end of last season as well. They are now undefeated in a total of eleven Championship games and have lost only one of their last fifteen (W10 D4 L1). The Welsh club are undefeated in their last fourteen home games in the division (W10 D4). It’s very impressive numbers that they have. They have scored at least two goals in nine of their last ten league home games.

Nottingham Forest News and Form
So can Nottingham Forest crack the strong home form of Swansea? It’s not been a bad season at all from Forest who are undefeated in five league games now. They have actually had a really tough run of games at the start of the season having faced West Brom, Leeds, Charlton and Fulham who are all sitting inside the top six. Now they have to face up to the league leaders. So that just goes to show how well they have been handling themselves given their current unbeaten streak.
The Tricky Trees are W1 D2 in their three away games played this season. They have managed only one clean sheet this season, home and away, so that will be a bit bothersome. Three of the four away goals which they have scored have been in the second half of games. Top scoring for them so far this season is Lewis Grabban with a four-goal tally. They are likely going to be put up at least another good show of resistance in a difficult game. Can they do enough to get a victory though out on the road?
