Our prediction for this match:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Plymouth, Swansea will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Forest Green Rovers on Wednesday. The Green Army have been having their ups and downs in pre-season, but they surely face an uphill task in the midweek friendly. You should bear in mind that the League Two side are eyeing their fourth clean sheet of the pre-season.
The Swans, on the other hand, continue their preparations for the new Championship campaign. The Welsh outfit are on a quest to return to the Premier League, and, no doubt, they want to prepare for the season opener against Blackburn in the best way possible. Swansea proved their worth in a 2-1 win over Plymouth, and seeing that several first-team regulars should be recalled against Forest Green, away win should definitely be considered.
