The winners at the Liberty will face either Cheltenham Town or Manchester City, who play at 5:30pm on Saturday.

The Swans come into the game on the back of victory at Barnsley last Saturday evening, whilst Forest – unbeaten in their previous six league games – suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Middlesbrough on Wednesday evening.

Another timely boost for the Swans is that midfielder Conor Hourihane will be available for the fourth round clash having completed his loan move from Aston Villa.

The two sides have only met one before in the FA Cup, when Swansea Town ran out 2-1 winners at the City Ground on 12 January 1929.

A brave Conor Roberts header earned the Swans a 1 nil victory at the City Ground when the sides last met back in November 2020.

Whilst Chris Houghton’s Forest side currently sit in 20th place in the Championship table, this is likely to be a tricky game for the Swans, and a lot will no doubt depend on the team Steve Cooper decides to select – with one eye on next Wednesday’s key Championship clash at home to Brentford ahead.
