Brit­ton pos­i­tive Swansea can over­come poor form

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

LON­DON: Mid­fielder Leon Brit­ton is con­vinced that Premier League strug­glers Swansea City can shrug off their slug­gish start to the sea­son as the Welsh club ended their run of four suc­ces­sive league de­feats with a 0-0 draw against Wat­ford in the week­end. Bob Bradley’s side came close to break­ing the dead­lock in the sec­ond half when Mike van der Hoorn met Gylfi Sig­urds­son’s free kick at close range, only to be de­nied by Heurelho Gomes. Sig­urds­son also hit the post for the home side, who re­main win­less in the league since the open­ing day of the sea­son, and find them­selves sec­ond from bot­tom in the ta­ble. “At the mo­ment, it’s just small mar­gins,” the 34-year-old told Bri­tish me­dia. “Hav­ing said that, I think there is a lot to build on for the fu­ture and if we carry on per­form­ing like we did... (on Satur­day), I am sure the re­sults will come. “We are cer­tainly in a dif­fer­ent sit­u­a­tion than we are used to. And yes, it brings a dif­fer­ent kind of pres­sure than we are used to. But as play­ers you have to get on with it and stand up and be counted.” — Reuters
