Danny aiming to upset his old employers

It's a return to the Liberty Stadium for the Rovers striker on Tuesday night

Danny Graham appeared 62 times in all competitions during his 18 months at Swansea City and admits he still holds the club close to his heart.

But now a Rover, the 33-year-old is heading to South Wales with the aim of hurting the supporters who once chanted his name.

Graham spent 18 months at the Liberty Stadium during the club's Premier League days scoring 21 times in total for the Swans during that time.

“I had a good time in Swansea. We were in the Premier League and I had a thoroughly enjoyable time in South Wales," Danny recollected.
"I still look out for their results and there are still a few familiar faces there from my time at the club.
“But I am a Blackburn Rovers player and come 7.45pm I’ll be doing all I can to help us get three points and go away happy.
“I enjoyed myself at most of the clubs I have been at and the last time I went back to Swansea was when I was on loan at Hull and I scored. Hopefully it can be the same again.
“I didn’t celebrate when I scored for Hull that day and we’ll have to see what happens on Tuesday night. I’ll probably do another daft knee slide if I do score!"
It's a new regime at Swansea following Graham Potter's appointment as manager in the summer, and Graham added that it always takes time to get used to another league following relegation.
“Swansea have had a big turnaround in players and have some young lads coming through as well. It does take time to adjust to a new division, as we showed when we started in League One last season," the Geordie frontman said.
“We’ll go there full of confidence and looking to get another three points on the board. It’ll be business as usual. We’ll watch Swansea on the videos this morning and analyse the way they play."
