Britton: We Can't Afford To Drop Our Standards

Swansea City visited London for the second time this season, and the outcome was the same, another 2-0 defeat.

Unlike the Charlton game on the opening day of the season, Swansea's performance and we didn't deserve anything out of the game against Warnock's men.

It was the first time this season we had performed really poorly, and Leon Britton said we can't afford to let the quality of our performances drop from our usual standards.

''We have got to maintain our standards,''

''We have had a decent start, but it's disappointing when you put in a performance like this.

''I think we can't get too carried away when we win and also, when we lose, we can't allow ourselves to get too down. We need to keep a level head.''

''We are very disappointed because we didn't play at the level that we expect to perform at from start to finish,'' said the little Londoner.

''Palace weren't brilliant, but we need to do a lot better than that. They have had a bit of a bad start but are a team that got to the play-offs last season and they know all about this division.

''But we didn't get the ball moving like we know we can and we didn't settle into the game.

''We also did a few uncharacteristic things which is disappointing, so we have to put that right.''

Swansea City have the perfect opportunity to bounce back on Tuesday night as they host Derby County at the Liberty Stadium.
