Coyle: We Must Be At Best To Beat Swansea

Burnley manager Owen Coyle believes that the Clarets will have to be at their best if they are to beat Swansea City tomorrow afternoon at the Liberty Stadium.

Coming off back to back wins Coyle's side will provide another stern test for Roberto Martinez's side but the Scot will have some insider knowledge of one of one of Swansea's key players in Jason Scotland. Whilst at St Johnstone the 29 year old was under the charge of the Paisley born manager.

It could provide the Turf Moor side with the vital edge to overcome a resolute Swansea side who have held their own in the second tier of the British game. However the side that came 13th in last seasons championship campaign will be out to impose themselves come game time.

Coyle Spoke On Burnley's Official Site:

'I think it's dangerous to play anyone in this league.There's no doubt about it, for me it is the toughest league in Europe in terms of everyone capable of beating each other.Whenever you play someone it is going to be a difficult game and we know that at Swansea.

'We played ever so well against Blackpool on the back of a good performance at Forest.But it counts for nothing unless we go and make it count on Saturday, when we have a difficult side against a quality, passing team in a fantastic stadium.They have momentum and they have started the season ever so well with a couple of valuable wins early on.It's up to us to go there and try to get our game going by moving and passing the ball about as we have done in the past few games.We know if we are at our best we have a chance of winning, but we have to be at out maximum.'


Vital Swansea will be running a match updates service with live chat and radio commentary for all those fans who cannot get to the game.

On paper this should be a very good game to watch and I can't wait to see the Clarets at Swansea. I've seen Swansea a couple of times over the last few seasons and think you have progressed well. Your defence was shocking a few years ago and has improved lately. I think if you improve it more you would be a serious contender for the top 6. With it being such a tight league it only takes strengthening of 2 positions to take you up several places. Hopefully Burnley have done that and can mount a challenge above half way. Time will tell. As always away from home I would take a point as a great result. Personally I would love all 3 to shut all the Swans I work with up. UTC, Brynhyfryd Claret :)
