Our prediction: Swansea v Barnsley

Swansea's stern defence will be required to dig deep in this one as Barnsley will hope to attack from the outset to level the tie quickly.

However, if Cooper's men can find the net first, it would leave Barnsley with a mountain of work to get through.

This finely-poised affair will require one team to play brave, bold football to land what could be a crucial first goal. Don't expect either side to run away with it though.

Our prediction: Swansea 1-1 Barnsley (5/1 at bet365)
