Swansea City manager Graham Potter is looking forward to his side’s ‘tough’ fixture away at Nottingham Forest.

That was the message from the Swans boss when he spoke to Wales Online, ahead of the Championship contest tomorrow afternoon.

Martin O’Neill’s side saw their play-off chances dealt a blow before the international break. They only managed to pick up one point from their last two games against Aston Villa and Ipswich Town.

This has left the Reds three points off the play-off places, with a number of teams above them having games in hand.

It certainly won’t be an easy game against the Swans. They are unbeaten in their last four league matches against the Reds, including the two games in the play-off semi-finals eight years ago.

Speaking on the Reds, Potter told WalesOnline: “They’ve got a good squad and management team, club that invested at the start of the season with a view to the play-offs, show their intent.


“They’ve got good players who will be trying to win the game. It will be a tough match for us.”

The Swans have two games in hand on the Reds, meaning that they still have 10 games left to play this season. Ahead of an intense period of fixtures over the Easter period, Potter believes it’s important to take it one game at a time.

He said: “We just need to focus on Forest, that’s how I see it. Focus on that game, try to win, be as positive as we can.

“10 games in six weeks, it’s intense. Just focus on the next one.”

The Swans haven’t won away from home in the Championship since New Year’s Day. For this reason, it’s the Reds who will come into this match as favourites.
