    • 14:50 Swansea have only won one of their last 11 against Bolton in all competitions (D4, L6), but that was in this season’s reverse fixture.
    • 14:45 Brendan Rodgers: "We will need to invest in the summer, there's no doubt about that. You look at the clubs who have stayed up in the past. They have invested at the next level and the next level after that. Hopefully we can grow as well, although I would not want to take my eye off the rough diamond we can polish up."
    • 14:40 Owen Coyle: "You've got to hand enormous credit to Wigan for the way they've gone about their job. But the bottom line is it didn't matter what anyone else did. We'll shape our own destiny and it's in our own hands.”
    • 14:35 Bolton boss Owen Coyle has opted for what looks like a 4-4-1-1 formation, with Chris Eagles playing just behind Kevin Davies. The likes of Jussi Jaaskelainen, Zat Knight, David Ngog and Ivan Klasnic must all make do with a place on the bench. Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers has selected his strongest team despite suggestions that he would give squad players a run out as the season draws to a close.
    • 14:30 Swansea returned to winning ways last week with a 3-0 defeat of a poor Blackburn side at the Liberty Stadium.
    • 14:25 Bolton are currently two points adrift of safety in 18th place but still have six matches to play.
