Match Preview | Swansea City v Albion

The Stadium is where the Baggies play Swansea on Monday

West Bromwich Albion travel to Swansea City on bank holiday Monday afternoon needing three points to keep their Sky Bet Championship Play-Off hopes alive (ko 3pm). 

The Baggies sit two points off the top-six pace heading into the final match of the season, knowing only a victory over the Swans and a favourable set of results elsewhere in the division would be enough to see them sneak into the Play-Off positions. 

Swansea's chances of earning a shot at promotion were ended last weekend as they could only draw 1-1 at Hull City, but Russell Martin's men have been in fantastic form of late, winning six of their last eight games and drawing the other two. 

There were five goals scored when the two teams met back on the first day of October at The Hawthorns, with the visitors coming away victorious courtesy of a 3-2 scoreline.

Our opponents

Swansea City are statistically the most in-form team in the Sky Bet Championship right now and boast more points won in their last five games than any other side in the division (13). 

The Swans are enjoying an eight-match unbeaten run, winning six matches and drawing the other two. 

Russell Martin's team were surging towards Play-Off contention, however last weekend's draw at Hull City put an end to their chances, with Monday's hosts sat five points off sixth in 10th position. 

Swansea are very easy on the eye and love to keep possession of the ball. Their tally of 35 goals scored in front of their own supporters this season is the fifth-best in the second tier. 

Martin, a former Scotland international defender, was appointed in August 2021 and will manage his 99th Swansea game against the Albion. He has a record of 35 victories, 27 draws and 36 defeats as the Swans' boss.

The Swans are hoping to end the season with a home win

From the Albion Archive 

The Baggies secured three precious Premier League points at Swansea City in March 2014.

Roland Lamah gave the hosts a very, very early lead, but Albion hit back twice in the second 45 to earn a crucial victory. 

Stephane Sessegnon and Youssouf Mulumbu were the heroes that particular afternoon. 

You can watch the highlights below.

One for the stattos

Only three of the last 24 meetings between the Baggies and Swansea have ended level. 

The last time there was a draw between the two teams was the final game before COVID-19 brought about a halt to football and life in general - a goalless encounter in March 2020 in South Wales.  

It's been over three years since the last draw between Swansea and West Bromwich Albion
