Championship 2008-09 Preview - Swansea City

If any of the sides coming up from League One are to follow in the footsteps of Bristol City in challenging for back-to-back promotions, then Swansea City look to be the best bet. Roberto Martinez has a rapidly growing reputation and there are already great expectations of several of his summer recruits. The influential Andy Robinson may have left, but Ferrie Bodde has stayed put despite Derby County’s lengthy pursuit of the player.

OUT: Andy Robinson (Leeds United); Kevin Austin (Chesterfield); Kevin Amankwaah (Swindon Town); Darryl Duffy (Bristol Rovers); Darren Way (Yeovil Town)
