Swansea City vs Wolves Preview
Swansea City claimed a crucial point on Saturday in their fight to stay up in the Premier League. It could even be said that the Swans were disappointed to only pick up the one point at St James’ Park against Newcastle rather than collecting the whole 3 points. They went ahead through Jordan Ayew but were pegged back with a goal from Joselu. New manager Carlos Carvalhal seems to have had a positive impact on the team so far.
Leroy Fer is available for this game after his red card in the first game against Wolves was rescinded for what was perceived to be a poor refereeing decision. Connor Roberts has come through the academy at Swansea and is expected to start again here. The manager has a decision to make on whether to rest players for the Premier League or give the FA Cup a good go. Considering the club are bottom of the league, it is likely that there will be changes for this FA Cup replay.
Wolves are flying high at the top of the Championship. They have a 10 point lead over second placed Derby County and it is well within the realms of possibility that they could be swapping places with Swansea City next season. Nuno Espirito Santo has got his side playing excellent football and they will be full of confidence going into this replay, even though they couldn’t break down a stubborn Barnsley side on Saturday.
There are not many injury problems for Wolves so he has most of his squad to choose from. Similar to Swansea, they will have to decide whether to rest players in this competition to focus on the league. With such a large lead though, they may be inclined to go with a stronger line up. Rafa Mir was recently brought in from Valencia and could play a part.

Swansea City vs Wolves Prediction
Swansea City will have a bit more confidence than they would have had a couple of weeks ago. The last few years in fact have been tough for the Welsh side. After long being considered as one of the best run clubs in the Football League, that reputation has fallen apart after a number of poor managerial choices, which have lead to a number of sackings and the side struggling towards the bottom of the league.
Wolves have money behind them now and with signings like Ruben Neves coming into the club for a big fee as well as beating Real Madrid to the signing of highly rated young striker Rafael Mir, they are providing big signals of intent. The club mean business, and barring a massive collapse will be a Premier League side in August.
One place separates the sides in the Football League pyramid and they are expected to be evenly matched again. The previous meeting between the sides was a tight affair with both sides getting a player sent off. Wolves created most of the chances in the first game, but Swansea have the home advantage this time.
We just can’t separate these two and the tip is for this tie to go all the way to extra time, so a draw in 90 minutes. A 1-1 Correct Score bet looks like decent value here.
