This Saturday sees the Swans travel to the KCom Stadium to face Hull City in the Championship for what is the 5:30pm televised game on Sky Sports.
Swansea made it three wins in succession last time out as they came from behind to beat Sheffield Wednesday by two goals to one.
The result lifts Swansea to 9th in the Championship and just four points outside the play off places.
Hull had a difficult start to the season winning just two of their first fourteen games in the league.
However they have since found some form losing just one game in seven which has seen them climb up to 17th in the table.
Hull’s recent games at the KCom has seen them beat the likes of West Bromwich Albion and Brentford, whilst also holding Norwich City to a draw so Saturday’s game, so this will be a tough game for Graham Potter’s men.
The KCom Stadium has not been a happy hunting ground for the Swans since Hull moved there in 2002/03, with the Swans losing six of the seven fixtures played there.

Hull City v Swansea City Match Predictions
The first recommendation I would make for the game is to back the under 2.5 goals in the game which is priced up at 11/12 (1.92) with 188Bet.
All of Hull’s last eight home games have seen two goals or less and even though Swansea won 3-2 at Brentford in their last away game, their ten away games that preceded this had seen a total of fifteen goals and so a tight affair is probably expected on the weekend.
Bersant Celina is our choice for a First Goalscorer selection this week and he is available at 12/1 (13.0) with BetFred.
Celina helped change the game with a goal and an assist after coming off the bench against Sheffield Wednesday, and I think the odds on offer are good value for him to back up that performance with another goal.
Celina is available at 9/2 (5.50) with BetWay, but there is the possibility that Graham Potter may opt to use him from the substitutes bench again which would affect the value on offer here.
I would advise for the First Goalscorer option on that basis but it might be worth seeing the team news on this one if punters would rather back an anytime selection.
Wayne Routledge will also no doubt have his backers to open the scoring having scored in his last two games.
Although he is not my choice I can advise that the best odds on Wayne at the time of writing are also 12/1 (13.0) with SpreadEx.
I’ll continue to advise punters with an accumulator, and this week I’m backing Man Utd, Derby, Luton, Lincoln and Wrexham, which pays 17.5/1 (18.50) with MarathonBet.
Wrexham play away to Aldershot on the weekend and Aldershot are suffering a severe injury crisis which could see them have just ten first team players fit for the game.
With this in mind, it might be advisable to back my selections earlier rather than later, especially as the betting market will react to this team news.
- Under 2.5 goals at 11/12 (1.92) with 188Bet.
- First Goalscorer – Bersant Celina at 12/1 (13.0) with BetFred.
- Accumulator – Man Utd, Derby, Luton, Lincoln and Wrexham at 17.5/1 (18.50) with MarathonBet.
