Swansea City pack their bags to visit Millwall at The Den on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Swans will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 12 and win only 5 of the 22 games.

The previous match played between the two at The Den was more than three years back, in November 2007, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a League One match.
