Premier League: Swansea v Wigan match preview
A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at the Liberty Stadium
Friday 19 October 2012
After a promising start to life in South Wales, Michael Laudrup’s Swansea have only managed one win from their last six games which prompted speculation of a players revolt.
Wigan manager Roberto Martinez – who has played for and managed both sides – will be confident his men's impressive record on the road in recent times can continue as Wigan have won five of their last 10 away Premier League fixtures.
The form guide reads identically for the two sides as they both lost three, drew two and won one of their last six games and both will be after a much-needed victory to get back to winning ways after losing their early-season momentum.
