Swansea City vs Leeds UnitedEngland Championship, KO: 19:45 Feb 13, 2024, Swansea.com Stadium
Leeds United will be looking to maintain their push for automatic promotion as they travel to Swansea City for a midweek Championship fixture. They are one of the most in-form teams at the moment and should have the upper hand over the Welsh side, who have struggled to find their best form in recent weeks.
Swansea City head into Tuesday’s clash off the back of a 1-0 victory at Hull City in their previous Championship fixture. Liam Cullen scored the only goal early in the first half and they were able to hold in for the win.
It was a much needed win for Southampton as it ended a run of four straight defeats. Luke Williams’ team had been on a downward spiral in recent weeks, although Saturday’s win means they are now seven points clear of the relegation zone.
One thing that still needs sorting is Southampton’s home form, with just two wins from their last 10 matches across all competitions at Swansea.com Stadium. They have lost their last two home matches and were beaten 1-0 by Plymouth Argyle is their previous fixture in front of their fans.
Leeds United were also victorious last time out in the Championship as they ran out 3-0 winners over Rotherham United. Patrick Bamford opened the scoring early in the first half while a brace from Crysencio Summerville completed the rout.
That result means Leeds United are unbeaten in their last nine matches across all competitions, claiming eleven wins in that run. Daniel Farke’s men are still in the mix for automatic promotion, sitting just one point off second placed Southampton.
Southampton have also been solid on their travels in recent weeks, winning their last four away matches. Their previous away fixture was a 4-1 extra-time victory at Plymouth Argyle in an FA Cup fourth round replay.
