Updated Friday, 19th February 2010
This week FootyMad's match preview focuses on the game between Derby County and Swansea City at 15:00 on Saturday, 20th February 2010 in the Championship.
Swansea City face a trip to Derby County at Pride Park 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 ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2009, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Championship match.
