Swansea City travel to take on Stoke City at Britannia Stadium on Sunday 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 14 and win only 4 of the 26 games.

The last time the two teams met at Stoke City was more than a decade ago, in March 2001, with Swansea City inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Potters in a League Division Two match.
