In The Dressing Room

Ryan Lowe should be able to choose from the same group of players who travelled to The Den to take on Millwall last weekend.

Everybody seemingly came through that game unscathed, with Liam Delap also returning from illness off the bench.

This game will come too soon for Ali McCann, while North End will also be without Alan Browne, Ched Evans, Emil Riis and Greg Cunningham.

A Look At Our Hosts


In his second season in charge of Swansea City, Russell Martin has got his side playing the possession-based style of football which he wanted to implement, and it now seems to be reaping rewards.

They head into Wednesday night having won four of their last five fixtures – keeping clean sheets in four of those matches – and they have closed what was a hefty gap to the Play-Off spots to seven points.

As good as their current form is, their season has ultimately been hurt by a few difficult patches, such as the one which preceded their current unbeaten streak which saw them lose seven out of nine Championship games.

Going Head To Head

Games played: 68
PNE wins: 23
Draws: 18
Swansea City wins: 27
Last meeting: PNE 1-0 Swansea City, 1st November 2022

One To Watch


Often operating as a sole striker, Joël Piroe remains not only Swansea’s key threat, but one of the biggest in the division.

After hitting 22 last season in his maiden campaign in England, the Dutch forward has got 16 to his name so far this term.

Two of those came in a recent away victory over Wigan Athletic, while he was also on the scoresheet in the Swans’ dramatic victory over their closest rivals Cardiff City at the beginning of the month.

Match Officials


Oliver Langford will take charge of his fourth Preston North End game of the season on Wednesday evening.

The three so far have been home fixtures at Deepdale, but North End have previously enjoyed themselves on the road with Langford in the middle, with notable victories coming in the 2018/19 season against Stoke City and Blackburn Rovers.

So far this campaign, Langford has taken charge of 26 matches, showing 95 yellow cards and one red.

Match Reports

Match Report: Swansea City 4 PNE 2

19 April 2023

Second-half goals from Tom Cannon and Troy Parrott weren’t enough to earn Preston North End a point on the road, as Swansea City came out 4-2 winners.

There were fewer than 80 seconds on the clock when Joel Piroe broke the deadlock, before Joe Allen and Harry Darling then added to the scoreline before the break.

Tom Cannon scored early in the second period and then substitute Troy Parrott scored his side’s second, but Piroe scored in stoppage-time to take the game away from PNE.

North End gave themselves work to do right from the start as the hosts took the lead just two minutes in, with Allen finding Piroe in the box, who beat Freddie Woodman to find the far corner.

At the other end, PNE’s first chance came through Cannon, who fired a low effort wide of goal from 20 yards, before Álvaro Fernández then saw a shot deflect behind.

Piroe had the next two opportunities of the game, with the first being a tame effort, but Woodman had to come up with a good stop to keep out Swansea’s top scorer on 28 minutes when he shot from ten yards.

Just after the half-hour mark, Daniel Johnson intercepted a loose pass in midfield and the ball made its way out to Brad Potts, but he whistled an effort over the bar.

Swansea had their second of the evening on 35 minutes when Ryan Manning broke forward and found Piroe, who in turn passed it on to Allen, and the Welshman was able to cut inside before finding the far corner.

The hosts would have a three-goal lead at the break, though, as Manning was again involved, this time finding an unmarked Darling eight yards out and the defender headed past Woodman.

Ryan Lowe made three changes at the break – which saw the introduction of Robbie Brady and the return from injury of Ali McCann – and the former claimed an assist inside three minutes as his free-kick fell to Cannon, who cushioned an effort past Fisher in the home goal.

Fernández then came close on 55 minutes when he was found by Ledson and the Spaniard hit the ball on the bounce, firing just the wrong side of the post.

Parrott was brought on for North End in the 69th minute as they kept looking for another goal and the Irishman got in just two minutes later, as Johnson found the striker who expertly dinked the ball over Fisher.

Against the run of play, the hosts could and perhaps should have had a fourth when Piroe rounded Woodman, but he chose to be unselfish and pass to Olivier Ntcham, and the midfielder blazed high and wide.

There was then a huge melee on the touchline in the final couple of minutes of normal time involving both sets of players, for which home midfielder Allen and North End manager Lowe was sent off.

The game was settled, though, in the fourth minute of stoppage-time when Piroe finished past Woodman for his second of the night.

Swansea starting XI: Fisher; Darling, Cabango, Wood, Latibeaudiere; Allen (Fulton, 62), Grimes; Cullen (Walsh, 62), Cooper (Ntcham, 75), Manning; Piroe (Whittaker, 90+7). Subs not used: Sondergaard, Paterson, Cundle.

PNE starting XI: Woodman; Storey (Brady, 45), Lindsay (McCann, 45), Hughes; Potts, Whiteman (Diaby, 45), Ledson (Onomah, 90+1), Johnson, Fernández; Cannon, Delap (Parrott, 69). Subs not used: Cornell, Woodburn.

Attendance: 15,433 (261 PNE pre-sales).

Referee: Mr O Langford.
