Having just lost their manager, Michael Laudrup, who received a surprised sacking not long ago, Swansea are setting themselves up for a difficult weekend tie against Cardiff City. Failing to pick up consistent results in recent times, the Swans will definitely be tested on their home fixture this Saturday, February 8 as Cardiff have been performing quite well under their new manager, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. However, playing in front of their home crowd in the historic Welsh derby, Swansea won't be keen on giving away any points fort their opponent.
Cardiff themselves will also push for maximum three points as they are keen on lifting their position from that bottom two seat in current English Premier League standings. Solksjaer surely won't be keen on having derby debut ended in disappointment that outcome can also put their position in much serious situation.
Swansea were the side coming away with all three points from that weekend tie as after being held in a goalless first 45 minutes, the home side went up on 47 minutes from Wayne Routledge's finish. Nathan Dyer extending his team's advantage with his effort on 79 minutes, before Wilfried Bony sealed things of with his goal five minutes from time.
