Bolton Wanderers become the latest team to arrive at the Liberty Stadium trying to score a first away goal, with Wigan, Sunderland, Stoke City and West Brom unable to find a breakthrough against the Swans on their own patch.
Brendan Rodgers’ team have had a decent start to the season thanks to that unbeaten run at home, although it could have been even better if the Welsh side had managed to preserve a two-goal lead at Molineux rather than let things slip in the final few minutes.
Swansea are the 11/10 favourites (bet365 £200 free bets) to win this game, although perhaps they would rather be playing this game at the Reebok Stadium considering that Bolton have been beaten on all five occasions on their own patch while showing far more spirit on their travels.
Owen Coyle’s team began the season with a 4-0 win at QPR and recently recorded a 3-1 triumph at Wigan which suggests that the players are comfortable away from their own ground at the moment. A spirited performance at Arsenal in the Carling Cup suggests Wanderers have a chance in this game and odds of 3/1 (Victor Chandler – £25 free betting) are probably too big.
Scoring goals is clearly going to be a problem for Bolton this term, although David Ngog has looked lively in the past few matches and continues to keep Ivan Klasnic out of the team. The home side will feature Danny Graham who is looking to score for his third consecutive match and the bookies offer 5/1 about the former Boro man.
Anyone looking to back Swansea recording a fifth consecutive clean sheet at home can get 15/8 with Coral about City shutting out a Bolton side who are struggling for form this term.
