Swansea City have only won once in their last seven games, but Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray wants his side to remain wary of the threat Graham Potter’s side possess.
The two sides head into tomorrow’s match with varying fortunes so far this season. After their relegation from the Premier League, Swansea City currently sit in 15th place, but have lost heir last two games and won just once in seven.
Blackburn Rovers on the other hand, head to the Liberty Stadium with their heads held high after beating Leeds United 2-1 on Saturday. Rovers climbed to 7th in the table and level on points with Norwich City and Derby County – who sit 6th and 5th respectively.
Mowbray has told Rovers’ official wesbite that his side will be heading to the Liberty Stadium feeling confident, but can’t get complacent.
“There are two teams competing and Swansea will be hurting from that defeat at Villa and will be aiming to get back on track,” The Gaffer told the club website.
“We’ll be playing against a very highly motivated and very talented team. The statistics show that they pass the ball more than any other team in this division. We expect them to have a lot of the ball and we’ll see if we can give them some problems alongside working very hard off the ball too.
“It’s the next test. We’ll go in with a game plan and be as positive as we can.
“They are a similar sort of team to Derby, that’s what I would suggest. They play a deep lying midfielder with two attacking midfielders either side, wide attackers and a centre forward.
“They are a good team with some big players with big reputations. Watching them, they are a threat.
“I see it as another challenge and a game we should look forward to. By kick-off, the team will be ready and we’ll give it our best shot as we do every game.
“They made three or four changes to their side against Villa, which included young Cian Harries, who I had at Coventry City. He’s very talented,” Mowbray added
“They started with a back three against Villa, but generally they play 4-4-3.
“Swansea are a good footballing team but that doesn’t mean they will win the game.
“It’s about getting the mindset right and being comfortable with it. We go to Swansea in confident mood.”
