MATCH PREVIEW: West Brom v Swans
2nd February 2016
Swansea City will be aiming for a third straight league win when they face West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday (7.45pm).
The Swans travel to the Hawthorns knowing victory will take them over Albion in the table and move them further clear of the Premier League's bottom three.
The recent win over Everton moved Swansea four points clear of the drop zone as Head Coach Francesco Guidolin got off to a perfect start in charge.
West Brom, meanwhile, come in to Tuesday's game on the back of a 2-2 home draw in the FA Cup against League One side Peterborough.
The home side added midfielders Alex Pritchard and Sandro to their squad before the end of the January transfer window, while the travelling Swans fans might get to see a first glimpse of new signing Alberto Paloschi following his move from Chievo last week.
WHAT THEY SAID
West Brom assistant manager David Kemp: "Tuesday's game against Swansea is a big game for us. We will be doing all the can to try and get three points.
"We have prepared well and hopefully we can get the win."
Swans Head Coach Francesco Guidolin: "We have a few more days than them to get ready, but it does not make much difference.
"A win would be important but right now I am very happy. Our position was not good but with two victories the table looks better.
"I have some other ideas (how to play) but this is a moment when I can't change too many things."
