Swansea City v Preston North End Match Preview

11 August 2018

The Lilywhites make the first of 23 away trips when they travel to South Wales to face Graham Potter's Swansea City in their second SkyBet Championship game of the season.

After an opening day victory over Steve McClaren's Queens Park Rangers at Deepdale on the opening weekend, Alex Neil will be looking for his side to build upon that with a tricky test against a side who only a few months ago were in the Premier League.

The Swans have pressed the reset button following relegation, with Graham Potter - who did an incredible job at Ostersunds - taking over at the helm at the Liberty, along with Alex's former manager at Hamilton, Billy Reid, as the assistant.

Like North End, the Swans opened their campaign with a win, an impressive 2-1 victory at Bramall Lane, against a Sheffield United side, who last season had a positive campaign, finishing just below PNE.
