Your guide to matchday 42.

Swansea City vs Wycombe Wanderers
Saturday 17th April 2021, k.o. 12.30pm GMT
Liberty Stadium
Sky Bet Championship

3rd plays 24th in the Sky Bet Championship at the Liberty Stadium, with Wanderers looking to recapture the form that saw them record back-to-back wins and earn their lead against Luton before succumbing to defeat with 10 men last weekend.

Swansea have recovered from a poor run of results which leaves them seven points adrift of the automatic promotion places and more likely to be forced into the play-off lottery, which last season saw them defeated at the semi-final stage by Brentford, though they have won their last two games, scoring five without conceding.

Steve Cooper's side were successful in the reverse fixture at Adams Park, recording a relatively comfortable 2-0 win on matchday 3 in October, and welcome the Blues for the first time since a Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie in 2007.

The previous year, Wycombe had won 3-2 at the Liberty Stadium at the first stage of a run all the way to the semi-final of the League Cup, with Adebayo Akinfenwa amongst the Swans squad that night, and he returns to the Welsh club for the first time ever as an opposing player.

Last Time Out
Here are the highlights from the 3-0 win at Rotherham in Wanderers' last away game:

Team News
Former Swans Adebayo Akinfenwa and Alex Samuel return to their old home, while ex-Cardiff man Joe Jacobson hopes to be fit again after injury, with Dominic Gape, Ryan Tafazolli and Nnamdi Ofoborh also in the treatment room and undergoing assessments. There's no news yet as to the availability of Josh Knight following his red card last week.

Ben Cabango is absent for the Swans, but they have no fresh injury concerns.

Kit
Wanderers will be in their yellow change strip for the final time.

Man in the Middle
Keith Stroud has shown 84 yellow and two red cards in his 32 matches in charge, which included Wanderers' wins against Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield, as well as the loss at Bristol City. He refereed a Football League Trophy match between these two teams 17 years ago.
