Last season it was a 2-0 win for the Swans at the Liberty, a result that in the end made the difference between the two sides at the end of the season, the Swans finishing 8th compared to the Potters 9th placed finish.
The game towards the end of the season proved to be a key point although both sides ended the season with a record breaking points tally and finish which is something that they will both be hoping to build on this season.
The two sides will go into the game with the Swans 13th and Stoke 16th and separated by just one point so it promises to be a good close encounter with the Swans defending their unbeaten home record so far this season.
Hughes though wants to erase the memories of that defeat back in May as he explained in the build up to the game
He said “Our games against them, certainly in Wales, have been difficult, and we didn’t play particularly well against them last year.
“We are looking to improve on that. Looking back, that probably stopped us being in a position above them come the end of the season.
“On reflection, we look back on that game and our performance with a little bit of regret.
“But we are in good heart now, which is important when you go to places like Swansea, who are very strong at home ordinarily.
“We just have to make sure we perform as we can and then I’m sure we will cause them problems.”
