Swansea City are back in Championship action on Saturday evening, with the Welsh side facing a tricky away day at Millwall.

After relegation from the Premier League last term, it has been a mixed opening to the new Championship campaign for the Liberty Stadium outfit.

Two wins and a draw against league leaders Leeds United must be deemed as positive results for Swansea, but a defeat to Bristol City at home last time out has blunted momentum.

The away day at Millwall may not leap out from the fixture list as one of the most-difficult clashes over the course of the campaign, but Neil Harris’ men are a tough opponent – especially at the The Den.

As covered by Bet UK, the Lions almost forced their way into the Championship playoffs last season, mostly down to an admirable home record.

As such, Swansea will need to be at close to their best to get a positive result at Millwall.

Graham Potter’s men are set for a boost as the club’s official website has confirmed key midfielder Leroy For is fit to feature at The Den if selected.

Swansea also have Tottenham loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers available to make his debut is called upon, with the United States international set to offer strength in depth at the back for the Liberty Stadium side.

Millwall have started their campaign slowly, with the Lions only winning one of their opening five games, with consecutive defeats against Rotherham United and Sheffield Wednesday of late.

If Swansea are serious in their ambitions to bounce back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, this is the type of fixture the Welsh side need to get a result in.

Potter’s side are already five points off the pace but victory at The Den would potentially move the Swans into the top six – somewhere the fans will be keen to see the side remain for the rest of the campaign.

For all Swansea fans travelling to The Den, transport options and relevant information is available her at Bet UK.
