Many thanks for following. I'm available at @danielstorey85, and hope you have a lovely Saturday evening
However, Wigan will be left fuming by the decision to rule Arouna Kone offside. He looked level, and would have evened up the game
The first half was woeful, the second half sublime. End-to-end for almost the whole 45 minutes, but Swansea deserve their win. They were more adventurous by far
Ali Al-Habsi comes up for a corner and gets his head on the ball. His header is easily saved, however. That might be it.
Two more substitutions, Di Santo and James McArthur removed, to be replaced by Jordi Gomez and Mauro Boselli
It's now Wigan who have control. Swansea look as if they will be happy to defend. The reaction of the fans shows they disagree.
Nathan Dyer with a stinging strike, well turned round the post by Al-Habsi. It's suddenly end-to-end madness!
In all that madness there have been two substitutions. Ben Watson comes on for Figueroa for Wigan, and goalscorer Hernandez is removed for Nathan Dyer
Wow! Arouna Kona heads the ball in but is ruled offside. He's level you know. Big let off for Swansea
2-1!!! It's raining goals at the Liberty Stadium! A scruffy goal but a wonderful backheel from Emerson Boyce.
2-0 Swansea!! Within two minutes, Swansea have doubled their lead, and it's another Spanish goal, this time Michu heading home a brilliant De Guzman corner
A turn on the edge of the area, swivel and shot from Hernandez, and the Liberty Stadium erupts in relief
Ki is beginning to control things in midfield, and has another shot smartly saved by the Wigan goalkeeper.
Ki shoots straight at Ali Al-Habsi, but with options right and left he should really have done better
From the resulting free kick, Shaun Maloney's shot lacks power but does force a save from Michel Vorm. Easy though.
Arouna Kone has a chance for Wigan after a flowing move, but his angle is too narrow and the ball goes wide
Wigan simply haven't had the ball enough today, and it's hurting them. Swansea coming forward at will.
At some point, professional footballers will stop hitting the first man with free kicks. Not today though
Wayne Routledge has played well today, his darting runs looking dangerous. He is fouled for a free kick near the corner flag.
Fantastic long range strike from Leon Britton, who hits the ball inches wide from 25 yards out. It would have been his first Premier League goal
No changes at half time from either manager, but both will want a significant improvement from the first half showing. Swansea need more invention, Wigan need more ball. The teams are back out.
Join me again for the second half, and rememebr to get in touch with @danielstorey85. I promise it'll be better after the break
Little action in front of goal in the first period. Swansea have had the better of things, forcing a number of corners, but neither side have tested the goalkeeper enough. Two managers will be having stern words, I suspect.
Chance for Swansea! As I type that, Michu fires the ball across goal, but no-one has gambled and Wigan concede a corner.
As the game approaches half time, it seems to be petering out a little. Honestly, it's been disappointing.
Pablo Hernandez has improved in the last fifteen minutes, and wins another Swansea corner. Rangel fires over from the headed clearance
Swansea gain a free kick out wide on the left. The ball is crossed in by Ki, and the Swans win a corner. The ball is cleared easily
A bit of respite for Wigan as Kone is fouled, but Swansea will feel that they must score now they have (finally) got on top of the game
Great chance for Swansea! Routledge does fantastically well down the right, and Michu heads over from six yards
There is a really subdued atmosphere here, which probably sums up the game thus far. Rangel wins a corner to liven them up
Swansea are now at least enjoying the majority of the ball, but do look reasonably uninventive. James McArthur has taken a knock in the face and will receive treatment.
De Guzman bends one from twenty yards which falls harmlessly wide, but at least he is trying to grab the game by the scruff of the neck. Someone needed to
Both sides very wasteful in possession, handing the ball back at will. Not how both sides usually try and play the game
Wayne Routledge provides a fabulous cross to Michu, but the Spaniard goes for the spectacular volley, which goes a yard over the bar
De Guzman is the man in the action. He shoots from outside the box but another comfortable save for Al-Habsi. Can I say this game needs a goal already?
Swansea have lost their way a bit, caught in possession once or twice recently, and Wigan's influence in the game is growing
The ball breaks to Shaun Maloney in the Swansea box after good play in midfield, but Vorm dives to save and hold the ball
Pablo Hernandez passes the ball out of play. A difficult start to his career in Engand for the £5.5million man
De Guzman strikes the ball for Swansea, but a regulation save for Al-Habsi. Wigan immediately win a free kick at the other end of the field
Caldwell fouls Michu and Swansea have a set piece forty yards from goal. No danger as they elect to take it short
Kone takes a shot at goal from 30 yards, but it is easy for Vorm in the Swansea goal. Probably going wide anyway.
Wigan finally get control of the ball with a couple of throw ins, but the side do look nervous in possession
Swansea starting nicely, passing the ball around as has become customary. A ball into the box from De Guzman is cleared.
So, five minutes until kick off. After hearing reports of unrest in the dressing room, Swansea fans will be hoping for a dominant display, and many look pretty nervous. The teams are on the way out...
Swansea play a funny little drumroll after announce each player over the tannoy, home and away. It's fairly dreadful.
Looking at the pictures from the ground, it would be fair to say that Wigan have not brought thousands of fans to the the Liberty Stadium, so no excuses for you not being glued to the thrilling live text.
A reminder to keep in touch with @danielstorey85 with your thoughts. I've just heard that the game is definitely going to be as exciting as Spurs v Chelsea
@_thescore gets in touch to say: 'Both teams are in need of a win, Swansea probably most with tough games coming up. 2-1 swans, Michu to get on scoresheet.'
7. The two games last season produced two goals, both scored by Gylfi Sigurdsson in the game at the DW Stadium. The corresponding fixture last season was 0-0, but I don't even want to think about that right now.
6. Both sides have identical records in their last six games, with two draws and three defeats in last five league games, both punctured by comfortable Capital One Cup victories.
Right, let's get two things sorted. Firstly, please get in touch with me on Twitter with your hopes, concerns and predictions for the game - @danielstorey85 - and I will publish as many as I can.
Today's referee is Mike Jones, who has issued 15 yellow cards in four games this season, but no red cards. Let's have none today either lads.
Wigan: Al Habsi, Boyce, Caldwell, Figueroa, Ramis, Beausejour, McCarthy, McArthur, Maloney, Di Santo, Kone
Swansea: Vorm, Rangel, Williams (c), Chico, Davies, Britton, Ki, De Guzman, Routledge, Hernandez, Michu.
