Courtney can't wait to get back to the Liberty

Courtney Baker-Richardson says Swansea City are chomping at the bit to get back on home soil when they host Sheffield United at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday (5.30pm).

The Swans have yet to play a home fixture in 2019, having travelled to Reading and Preston in the Championship, as well as facing an away draw against Aston Villa in the FA Cup.

Graham Potter's men have come through that trio of fixtures undefeated, and can now look forward to having four of their next five games in front of their own fans.

"The Liberty Stadium is a fortress and we love it when we play there," said Baker-Richardson, who has scored in his last two appearances.

"Our fans are a credit to us when they are packing out the Liberty, or so many of them are travelling to our away games.

"It is a great atmosphere whenever we step in there and play, and we need to bring the frustration we felt at Preston and channel that energy into making sure we win there.

"We have our next three games at home and if we win those we can be in and around it.

"Points are points and we need them."
