Swansea City v Millwall - Friday 7th March, 2008

Swansea City v Millwall - Friday 7th March, 2008
Friday 07 Mar 2008 [10:42]
 
Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez will tell his players to go out and make history tonight when Kenny Jackett brings his Millwall side to the Liberty Stadium (7:45pm).
 
The Swans need to avoid defeat to equal a Club record of 19 league games unbeaten set way back in 1970-71.
 
"The players are in the privileged positions of being able to write their names in the history books," explained Roberto.  "They've worked extremely hard this season it would be their just reward.  Just as important though is the need to finish the season maintaining our high standards."
 
But while the record breaking Swans side of 1970-71 failed to clinch promotion that season under manager Roy Bentley, Roberto's new breed aim to go one better and secure their place in the Championship.
 
With the Swans 11 points clear at the top of the table, another victory on Friday night will keep the pressure up on their promotion rivals ahead of Saturday's fixture programme.
 
Both Bauza (groin) and Tudur Jones (ankle) completed an intense four-day training programme in Spain under the guidance of physio Richie Evans to boost manager Roberto Martinez's options.
 
Midfielder Andy Robinson was also able to use the hydrotherapy facilities on site to speed up his recovery from a slight knee injury that saw him limp off at half-time in the 1-0 win at Huddersfield on Saturday.
 
It means Robisnon will also be available for tonight as the Swans look to extend their 11-point lead at the top of League One with just 13 games to go in their chase for the Championship.
 
Richie Evans also kept in constant touch with the short-term injured party left behind - Garry Monk (back), Jason Scotland (toe), Marcos Painter (hamstring), Dennis Lawrence (knee) and Paul Anderson (hamstring).
 
While Monk has not ruled himself out, the Swansea skipper is realistically targeting a possible return against Tranmere at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday with his lower back problem slow to recover.
 
Lawrence and Anderson have a chance of making comebacks at Northampton a week on Saturday, while Painter is still another two to three weeks away with Andrea Orlandi (knee) close behind.
 
Tickets for tonight's game are selling extremely well, and are selling extremely well and look set to top the 14,000 that saw the Swans beat Luton 1-0 in the last league fixture at the Liberty Stadium a fortnight ago.
 
Fans are urged to purchase their tickets in advance on 08700 400 004 on in person at the Liberty Stadium to avoid the large queues forming on the night.
 
The park & ride facilities off J45 and park & walk opposite the Stadium are both in operation.
