MATCH PREVIEW: West Brom v Swans

11th February 2015

The Swans go in search of a third Premier League win at the Hawthorns when they face West Brom on Wednesday (8pm).
The Midlands stadium has proved to be a happy hunting ground for Garry Monk's side, who have lost just once in their last four trips to Albion.
Last season's 2-0 victory came courtesy of goals from Ben Davies and Pablo Hernandez, while the Swans beat West Brom 3-0 back in August at the Liberty Stadium.
Monk's men come int this contest on the back of four points from two games against Southampton and Sunderland, while West Brom have lost just once under new boss Tony Pulis.
Albion are just one point outside the relegation zone, while Swansea are three points behind eighth-placed West Ham.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis: "We have got one or two little niggles or knocks. We might make a few changes. If we do it will be tactical more than anything else.
"Some the lads can do 90 minutes, 90 minutes and 90 minutes and some of them need to do bits and pieces so we will have a look."

Swans boss Garry Monk: "We've had positive results in our last two games. We wanted the three points on Saturday. It wasn't to be, but four points from our last two games is the reaction we wanted after the defeat to Chelsea and the cup game.
"There are still areas to improve, but overall we are pleased with that."
