EFL Championship | Swansea City VS Stoke City; Thursday, 11 April at 02:45 GMT +8

Swansea and Stoke are both struggling to move away from the relegation zone. Swansea, currently five points above the relegation places, have only won four of their last 15 league games and are not yet safe from the drop. Stoke, on the other hand, sit 18th in the division and are four points above the bottom four. Potters, on the other hand, have been in better form with ten points from their last five matches. Stephen Schumacher’s side has suffered from inconsistency on their travels, winning only two away fixtures after losing four consecutive road matches between January and March. The Potters have a decent recent record in this fixture, with three wins and two draws from their last five encounters since August 2021.

Swansea City is aiming to improve on their 2-0 defeat to Middlesbrough, where they had 61% possession and 7 shots at goal. They have not held out for 90 minutes in recent games, with five of their last six clashes resulting in five goals. They have not won over Stoke City in their last five league matches, and this match is expected to be their last.

Stoke City won 2-2 in a Championship match against West Bromwich Albion, with 58% possession and 18 attempts at goal. Million Manhoef and André Vidigal scored goals for Stoke City, while Mikey Johnston and Jed Wallace scored for West Bromwich Albion. Stoke City has fired home seven times in their previous matches, with an aggregate of six goals against them. They remain undefeated by Swansea City in their last two away league games.
