Swansea City can’t let the recent Birmingham City disappointment play on their minds for too long as they are back in action on Easter Monday when they face Preston North End at Liberty Stadium.
The Steve Cooper’s side have taken a big blow to their automatic promotion hopes in recent weeks as they suffered three straight defeats to Bournemouth, Cardiff City and Birmingham. Scott Hogan’s time penalty for injury on Friday sealed the three points for Lee Bowyer’s side last time.
With many Swansea players just returning from international hiatus prior to the trip to St. Andrews, Cooper may be forced to leave against the managerless.
We believe Cooper will face Preston on Monday with three changes to the team that started against Birmingham.

Freddie Woodman keeps his place in goal after saving one of Swansea’s two penalties in Friday’s defeat.
However, there are two changes in defense with Ben Cabango returning to center-back in place of Connor Roberts and Kyle Naughton plays from his usual center-back position as right full-back. His Welsh team-mate has been bad in the last few games.
Ryan Manning comes on as left-back instead of Jake Bidwell to give Cooper’s side more energy.
In the likely absence of Conor Hourihane, the Missed the encounter on Good Friday, the midfield trio of Jay Fulton, Matt Grimes and Korey Smith remain the same.
This means Yan Dhanda will remain on the bench after spending some terrible minutes on the field at St. Andrews when he awkwardly gave away the late penalty.
Finally, there’s a change ahead as 20-year-old gem Morgan Whittaker deserves a chance to start especially after an impressive performance against Bournemouth lately. Jamal Lowe fell while his target drought persists.
