Swansea City will hope to return to winning ways when they host Leicester at the Liberty Stadium later (KO 1730).

The Swans have stalled of late - losing three and drawing two of their last five - following their blistering start to the season.

Fans will be pleased to see Jonjo Shelvey return to action after a week's suspension, but less content with an injury list including Leon Britton, Jordi Amat and Dwight Tiendalli.

Only effective protest vote is for Plaid says Wigley

Former Plaid Cymru leader Dafydd Wigley, who's running his party's 2015 Westminster election campaign, will tell Plaid's conference today that the only effective protest on behalf of Wales is made by voting Plaid Cymru. Lord Wigley will back the call by his successor, Leanne Wood, for Wales to get an extra £1.2 billion a year from the Treasury as part of a package to deliver partity with Scotland.

“In any discussion about future constitutional settlement, Wales demands parity with Scotland – full parity, not just parity of esteem, but parity of power – and parity of financial resources.

“If it isn’t immediate independence, it has to be much more than devolution – for power devolved is power retained – as we in Wales well know.

“It has to be a new partnership between nations on these islands; and we, here in Wales too, have to be part of that partnership.

“If Wales got as much, pro-rata, as Scotland gets in comparison to England, then our National Assembly would be getting £1.2bn more each year. The financial treatment of Wales has been a scandal – and this issue, above all others, must dominate the coming general election here in Wales.

“Plaid Cymru will use the next six months to demand for Wales full parity with Scotland. In funding, in our National Assembly’s powers, in our place within the UK as it evolves, and with other small nations within the EU.

“In the forthcoming election, there may be several ways in which the voters can protest, but protesting, of itself is not enough: it must be positive protest, protest to a purpose. And the only way of protesting for the purpose of getting Wales a new deal is to be voting for Plaid Cymru candidates the length and breadth of Wales.”

– Lord Wigley
