Kyle Naughton and Ryan Bennett to return tonight : Swansea City v Plymouth Argyle

Swansea City welcome back both experienced defenders Naughton and Bennett for tonight’s extremely tough home tie against Plymouth Argyle. Russell Martin has two more first team games before he takes a welcome break for the international period.
Martin was buoyant speaking pre match when he said “Every game represents a chance for us to get a step closer to where we ultimately want to be, and every time we take the field it is going to be our aim to improve, to perform as very best we can and hopefully, as a result, win games. We are facing a good side who have enjoyed a good start to their season. That comes as no surprise to me having faced Plymouth in League One last season. Ryan Lowe is doing an excellent job there, and they will pose a test for us. “They play a similar system to us, and they will look to play a similar way to us so it is going to be important that we look to dictate the game through our play with the ball. “They have nothing to lose, they are the underdog as the team playing against a side in the division above and it’s important we recognise that and come with the right intensity and attitude to make sure we are ready to face that challenge.”
Ryan Bennett will play some part in tonight’s game
That positivity has to be reflected in the swans support this evening at the Swansea.Com stadium, an attendance of around 8,500 is expected, more than tripling neighbours Cardiff from the first round who registered 2,100 home supporters against Sutton United who they scraped past 3-2.
With Martin indicating that it’s another opportunity for the players to get more conversant with his style of play we can expect some changes, but not that many.
The game isn’t on LIVE TV but you can listen on Talk Sport who have a round up of all the nights action as it happens, or watch the goals as they go in on Sky Sports News.
