Pool have the opportunity to grab an automatic promotion spot in the last game of the season while the Swans are looking to grab a play-off spot.

Who up??

A win for Bristol City will mean they take the second automatic promotion spot.

If City don't win and Forest, do then Forest get promoted. If both sides fail to win, lets hope so, and Pool win the Pool go up. draws for Forest and Bristol are not good enough if we win at the Liberty.

For Swansea they need to better Oldham's result to secure the last play off spot.

Swansea Team News:

Swansea will be with out the services of two players for their vital game. Alan Tate picked up an eye injury in the Carlisle win, the scratched eyeball is causing blurred vision and a knock could cause further damage. Kevin Amankwaah will take his place in the side.

Tom Bultler has a depressed fracture of his big toe so misses the match and any possible play-off fixtures. One piece of good new is defender Marcos Painter is expected to be in the match squad after a recent knee injury.

Player to watch: Leon Britton

The pint sized midfielder has impressed since his move from West Ham back in 1993. Despite being only 5.06` Britton goes about his job in midfield with efficacy being the source of many attacks, but this Barker and Williams on form he`ll find it hard to get into the game.

Blackpool Team News:

Pool have no new injury worries going into the match, the only change will be on the right of midfield, with Chris Brandon suspended his place will go to either former Swan Adrian Forbes or Simon Gillett.

Player to watch: Wes Hoolahan

Often the young winger has made the difference in games this season. Saturday is an important game and important players have to perform, one hopes Wes does.

Match Facts & Stats

The two sides shared the points in the meeting at Bloomfield back in December, Carl Dickson with an own-goal gave the Swans the lead but they were pegged back in the second half with a Scotty Vernon goal on 83.

Pools only trip the Liberty Season was last season and ended in a controversial 3-2 defeat. Leon Britton scoring the controversial third goal where Lee trundle was offside and followed the ball into the net but he was deemed as inactive?
