Rovers are yet to win on their three visits to the Liberty Stadium, and Tony Mowbray knows his side will be in for another tough game this weekend.

When both sides were in the Premier League, Rovers were beaten 3-0 by the Swans in April 2012, while their two Championship meetings have ended 3-1 and 1-1.

That draw came last December, with Bradley Dack shown a red card, moments after the hosts had themselves been reduced to 10 men.

Their two most recent Ewood matches have ended 2-2, so the sides have certainly shared some close, and entertaining, encounters in recent times.

Swansea have had the better start, five points and eight places above Rovers after eight games, and Steve Cooper has utilised the loan market well during his time in charge.

However, Mowbray says his side can take confidence from wins away at Derby and Coventry, as well as their performances, albeit in defeat, against Bournemouth and Watford.

“They’ve relied pretty heavily since their relegation on the loan market, Brewster was a big player for them last year of course,” Mowbray said of the opposition.

“They have some players who are pretty consistent for them, Grimes and Fulton and then Ayew who is a high-class player.

“They have a sprinkling of young players around that, they have just sold one of them to Tottenham, and I think it’s a good game for us.

“They had a good result in midweek, we know it’s a tough game, every time you go to Swansea you know it’s going to be a tough game.

“But we feel as though we’ve been doing well on the road and we’re looking forward to the challenge.”

Meanwhile, are preparing for a technical Rovers side who will come and look to score goals.

Head coach Steve Cooper says his side must be aware of Rovers’ threat, having scored 18 times in their eight Championship fixtures to date, but his focus will on his side who sit fourth in the table.

Victory over Stoke City in midweek has left the Swans sitting pretty in the early stages and with another home game on the horizon, and no fresh injury concerns, Cooper is pleased with his how his side are faring.

He told Wales Online: “There’s so many games coming thick and fast. The only thing you can focus on is the next game and the status of the squad.

“It’s going to be a tough game on the weekend.

“They’re playing in a very fluid and attractive way. I can see why they’re creating and scoring.

“They brought in Harvey Elliott and they’ve got lots of other technical players. They try to play on the floor and through the lines.

“We have to be ready for that, but as I always say, we’re at home and it’s got to be about us and playing our game. That’ll be our biggest focus.”

Midfielders Morgan Gibbs-White and George Byers will both miss tomorrow’s game, but central defender Ryan Bennett is available despite coming off late on in the Stoke win.

Cooper said: “It’s about trying to manage the squad now and put out the best team possible.”
