Tickets are selling quicker than ever for Thursday’s play off tie with Brentford and after just one day of them going on general sale, only West Stand tickets are remaining.

Waiting times have stretched to more than 4 hours at peak times and although I was expecting a sell out for the Southend game, no doubt Thursday will be.

With the need to speed up ticket sales, the club confirmed on the official site today that they have introduced additional ticket outlets.

The ticket outlets on the West Stand that are usually just for matchday use only will be open on Wednesday to sell home leg tickets on a cash only basis, to non season ticket holders.

Seaosn ticket holders must purchase their tickets from the ticket office.

For the away leg meanwhile, there are no seats left, only terracing tickets remain and they are selling very fast as expected.

Swansea City have been supplied with 619 stand tickets and 2656 for the away tie to be played on Sunday 14th May at 12:15pm.

In other news, Kristian O’Leary has been given the all-clear to play (if picked) on Thursday.

A foot injury kept him out of Saturday’s game at Chesterfield but he has been given oxygen treatment, the same as what Wayne Rooney’s been having recently.

Club physio Richard Evans said:

‘By giving him high doses of oxygen it has speeded up the healing process and the swelling around his foot has gone right down.”

Leon Britton has showed no signs of his groin injury returning so he’s expected to be fit for Thursday as well.

Have you got your tickets for Thursday? How was your experience down at the ticket office? You can discuss this and more topics on our forum here.
