Swansea City are set to face off against Leeds United in the Championship on Wednesday at Elland Road, in what will be a tough away day for the Welsh outfit.

The 11th place Swans will go into the game as the underdogs against their second-placed opponents.

As far as recent form goes, Swansea have been the slightly better side. The Liberty Stadium outfit have managed to win three out of their last six games in all competitions, drawing two and losing one.

That is something that they can take motivation from heading into the game.

However, Graham Potter’s side have largely been outplayed by the Yorkshire giants during recent meetings. Leeds have won their past nine home games against Swansea in all competitions, as reported by BBC Sport. 

Leeds meanwhile have lost three games during the same period, winning twice and drawing their last game 1-1 against Middlesbrough. The two sides played out a 2-2 draw earlier on this season.

Swansea boss Potter believes that winger Daniel James will be at his best during the game against the Whites, as reported by BBC Sport.

The 21-year-old was close to moving to Elland Road during the January transfer window and even reportedly had a medical at the club before Swansea pulled out of a deal at the last minute.

For the Swans, striker Oli McBurnie is a concern due to illness, as reported by Wales Online.

The Scotland international is still suffering from the after effects of illness and was only fit enough to be included on the bench for the game last weekend against Millwall.

Potter is set to be without the services of Leroy Fer while doubts also remain over the availability of Declan John and Wayne Routledge.
