West Bromwich Albion Manager Tony Pulis

Swansea defender Ashley Williams feels Wednesday’s opponents West Brom have improved significantly since the appointment of Tony Pulis as manager.

Pulis joined Albion at the start of January following the exit of Alan Irvine and has overseen a huge improvement in results in recent weeks, with just one defeat in seven games since his arrival.

Swansea secured a comfortable 3-0 win over West Brom earlier in the campaign, but Williams is expecting a stern test from the Baggies at the Hawthorns on Wednesday.

“Tony Pulis is there now and we all know what sort of manager he is, so we know it’s going to be a tough game,” Williams told the BBC.

“What you know with his sides is that they’re going to be organised and very difficult to beat.

“I’m sure he’s trying to implement that there, and it’s about us trying to break them down.

“But they’re at home so they should come out a little bit and hopefully it’s a good game.”

Swansea are 3.20 to secure the win but they will be without influential midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson due to suspension.

West Brom are 2.34 to take all three points on Wednesday and a draw can be backed at 3.03.

The Baggies have a couple of injury concerns as both Jonas Olsson and Victor Anichebe are considered as doubts.
