SWANSEA manager Roberto Martinez has challenged his side to stretch their unbeaten run to 11 matches tonight.
The Welsh team made it seven wins in 10 by beating League I rivals Yeovil in a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tie at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday.
“There is a word which is vital in football and that’s consistency,” said the former Swansea player, who became manager in February.
“You have to be able to show it in your performances and you need to have it in your squad.
“That’s what is pleasing at the moment – whoever steps into the team is giving us that desire to get a result.
“We need to keep that going, and it’s a nice challenge for the players to see how far they can take this run now.
“It’s a good motivational tool for them – but the key is to keep taking it step by step and trying to do your best in the next challenge.
“For us now that’s against Huddersfield tonight.”
After utilising his squad strength for two cup clashes, Spaniard Martinez is set to make more changes to his team tonight.
Ferrie Bodde, described by some as the ‘Dutch Roy Keane’, is pushing for a return after a hip injury.
He appeared as a substitute against Yeovil.
Martinez, who has teenage midfielder Paul Anderson on loan from Liverpool, must also choose between Alan Tate and Dennis Lawrence in defence.
Swansea: De Vries, Rangel, Monk, Tate, Lawrence, Austin, Anderson, Pratley, Bodde, Britton, Butler, Scotland, Duffy, Bauza, Robinson, Painter, Orlandi, O’Leary, Allen, Knight.
Town: Glennon, Sinclair, Skarz, Mirfin, N Clarke, Kamara, Wallwork, Holdsworth, Collins, Schofield, Young, Brandon, Booth, Beckett, Cadamarteri, Killock, Racchi, Broadbent, Smithies.
Referee: Keith Hill (Hertfordshire).
