The Robins look as though they are set for mid-table obscurity this season, now 12 points off the play-offs and safely above the relegation battle. Though, points remain valuable, and they will fancy their chances as they hit the road to face a Swansea City side in poor form of late. The Swans are now as low as 17th and in danger of slipping into danger after three defeats on the bounce and five defeats in their last six games.
Ahead of the South Wales clash, we have rounded up all the information you need.

What Russell Martin has said
Swansea boss Martin said in his press conference: “I’ve been really encouraged by the last three performances. I think we’ve built and got better in every game since Luton. Middlesbrough I thought we played well. We’ve been unfortunate against three teams in the play-offs with really different to us currently.
“On Tuesday we deserved minimum a point which we didn’t get. To make 700 passes at The Den and record 10 shots on target, not many teams do that.
“The players have been energised by it, they enjoyed themselves on the pitch. they enjoyed the togetherness they played with. We just have to recognise it’s where we’re at. It’s been a frustration all season but it’s something all the guys, especially the young players, will all be better for it.
“We spoke about it as a coaching staff and the learning we’ll have from the tough moments is incredible. It’s something we’ll be grateful for. If we can learn from moments like this and come through them together we’ll be much better for it because we’re trying to build something here that will be sustainable.”
What Nigel Pearson has said
Speaking ahead of this one, Pearson has said: “We’ve done really well since the Christmas period and had lots of positives.
“We’ve had some setbacks too with injuries which has asked different questions of the squad. It’s going to be important for us to finish this block of games with a good result. But as much as anything we want to try and pass that 50-point mark and look at the last block games and see where we can get to.”
