It is a bit of a rarity for the Swans next weekend as we return to the important matter of our promotion push but we do so with a 7.45pm Saturday kick off in South Yorkshire against Barnsley.

It's the first time the Swans have been scheduled to play at this time and whilst it would normally be a great time for maybe some pub football watching, lockdown restrictions mean that The Masked Singer on ITV will have to take a back seat to Saturday evening football as we look to continue our push for the Premier League.

The FA Cup tie against Stevenage will have been seen as a little distraction as we come head to head with Barnsley for the second time in four weeks after we beat them 2-0 at the Liberty on December 19 (Match report here and the start of another double header away from home as we travel to Blackburn on Tuesday 19th.

As ever on Planet Swans we have for you some of the most comprehensive pre-match coverage in our matchday thread that will bring you all we need to know over the next few days as well as all the chat during the match together with every post match follow up you would wish to read (and maybe even more!)

A cracking chippy before the game but missed out on the Birch pint.
Barnsley strong at the end of games recently. Take a point but 3 would be nicer.

I remember the 3-1 win in the League Cup in 2012. Mark Gower came on for one of his last appearances for the team (only played in 3 games that season before leaving) and I remember deciding to keep a tally of his stats because someone on Planetswans was bound to slate him.

Sure enough someone did that evening, claiming he'd given the ball away loads after coming on. I can't remember who it was (definitely not Perch for once), but they got very offended when I supplied his passing stats, demonstrating he only actually failed to complete 1 pass. :lol:

Bournemouth dropping points tonight is good news, as is Brentford having games off because of Covid. They could end up with a big fixture pileup at the end of the season.

A very positive result for us last night - was expecting us to drop out of the top 2 especially after Bournemouth went ahead.


Been running this place since 2001, still gives me a headache now!

Meet the referee

Saturday's referee is Jeremy Simpson

Jeremy Simpson will take charge of the Swans for the first time this season after he was appointed as the referee for Saturday evening's clash at Barnsley.

With 31 yellow cards and 2 red cards in 10 previous Championship appearances this season (both reds coming in the same game between Sheffield Wednesday and Bournemouth) we can expect some card waving in the Sky encounter in what will be his first time in charge of the Swans since December 2019.

That game was against Blackburn in a 1-1 draw at the Liberty, an entertaining encounter that saw both sides have a player dismissed (Tom Carroll for the Swans and Bradley Dack for Blackburn) and left Steve Cooper in no doubt that the referee missed two penalty decisions for his side.

“I’ve seen the penalty decision back for handball and it’s just a massive error from the referee,” Cooper told Wales Online.

“Because he knows he made the error he’s then made the poor red card decisions and he’s lost his composure really. I didn’t think either was a red card because I’ve looked at them back.

“He’s made four major decisions and he’s got them fundamentally wrong. I’m only being honest. I am criticising him, but I’m saying it as I thought at the time and I’ve seen the decisions back.

“I’ve been to see him as well. He knew the ball hit his (Dack’s) hand so he said that but his hand isn’t next to him, it’s out. I get it if there are loads of players around him, but it’s travelled 15 yards before it has hit his hand. “He is going to be embarrassed when he sees it back on TV.

“He’ll probably be refereeing in the conference now. I think he lost composure because he knew he’d made some big errors. He was nervous. I was very respectable afterwards because I knew he was uncomfortable with his night.

“He’s a professional and I want him to progress, but we have to be honest and unfortunately he’s going to get marked down.”

Opposite number Tony Mowbray agreed with some of the comments made by Cooper "Dack's second yellow is embarrassing. He just stuck his backside into the lad.

"It felt like it was just evening things up a little bit - he (referee Simpson) wasn't sure he'd got the first sending off right."

There’s a fair bit of snow oop thar. More forecast for Saturday as well as very low temperatures. Hope the bus can make it safely!
