Swans boss Roberto Martinez is predicting a cup classic against the MK Dons at the Liberty Stadium tonight (7pm), as both Clubs go all out to clinch a dream date at Wembley in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final.

The Swans entertain Paul Ince's League Two leaders in the first of a two-legged Southern Area Final, with the return leg taking place in front of the live Sky cameras next Monday at Stadium:MK.

"Both teams are in fine form at the top of their respective leagues and it should be a great game for the spectators," declared Roberto. "But we are looking forward to it; excited in fact because there is a huge prize at the end of it."

Roberto is also expecting former Swans goalkeeper Willy Gueret to receive the warm welcome he deserves when he makes his return to the Liberty sporting Dons colours.

"Willy has had a very good season at MK Dons and we are all pleased for him," he added. "He has been a huge player for this club and has helped us record some great memories. I'm sure the fans will want to wish him well probably more so after the game!"

Roberto confirmed that Paul Anderson has a "slight chance" of being passed fit after a hamstring injury, but it's too early for Dennis Lawrence and Owain Tudur Jones to come into the frame.

While keeping his starting line-up close to his chest, Roberto added that he "will share the effort as usual between the squad."

The Walsall league game saw large queues, with some supporters missing the kick-off so all Swans fans are urged to purchase tickets for the game in advance.

The Club is expecting another big turn out after designating the game "Free for the Under-16's", with an early 7pm kick-off to encourage young fans to the game. The Club has extended the offer to include four free under-16 tickets with every full paying adult.

Ticket prices have also been reduced to £10 for adults and disabled; and £5 for senior citizens and students. Any under-16 tickets purchased without a full paying adult will be charged at £5.

Only the East and West Stands are currently open, so season ticket holders will not be able to guarantee their seat for this game.

Tickets are now on sale from the Ticket Office, by phone 08700 400 004 or through http://www.swanseacity.net/.

There will also be a cash only ticket booth outside the South Stand for tonight's fixture.

The park & ride off J45 and park & walk opposite the Stadium will be in operation as normal.
