2019-20 Sky Bet Championship: Week 43 – Sunday

Swansea City welcome Leeds United to Liberty Stadium in a huge Sky Bet Championship clash. 

A win for Swansea can put them into sixth and that last play-off spot, whereas Leeds can restore their three point lead over West Bromwich Albion at the Championship summit with victory.

Jordan Garrick is available for Swansea after completing a suspension. 

Ben Wilmot (knee) and Joe Rodon (ankle) remain ruled out. 

Leeds have no fresh injury concerns to report from Thursday’s win over Stoke as Kiko Casilla serves the last of an eight game ban. 

Adam Forshaw (hip) is the Whites’ only absentee. 

 

Stat Attack

  • Swansea are unbeaten in three of their last five meetings against Leeds (W2, D1, L2).
  • Leeds are winless in last five trips to Swansea (D2, L3)
  • Patrick Bamford has scored once in three of his last four Leeds appearances. 

 

Prediction

Leeds come into this game in fantastic form so this will be a tough test for Swansea, whose recent home form has been quite inconsistent with needless points dropped against opposition like QPR and Luton. 

The Swans however on their day can be difficult to beat so I am expecting a tough encounter, but Leeds should have enough to get a win otherwise a defeat could open the door for Brentford to make it a three-way automatic promotion fight. 

Prediction: Swansea City 1-2 Leeds United

Result: Swansea City 0-1 Leeds United
