Britton Vows To Line Up Against Bluebirds

Britton Vows To Line Up Against Bluebirds

Leon Britton has given all Swansea City fans a boost with the promise to do anything it takes to face Cardiff City next Sunday.

Britton was forced off injured against Birmingham with a recurrence of a back injury which was feared may keep him out for a lengthy spell.

However, whilst the game against Coventry will come too soon for the former West Ham man, he has promised to pull out all the stops to make next Sunday's massive local derby.

Speaking to the Western Mail, the little midfielder said:

"It`s pretty hard to judge the injury but I would be gutted to miss the Cardiff game and, whatever it takes, I will do it.'

"If I need an injection I am happy to go down that road. It would take something pretty big to stop me playing in that game.'

"The back is still quite stiff at the moment. But I`ve had problems for a couple of weeks now and been able to deal with it.'

"It`s definitely not as bad as people first thought. We just need to nurse it through and do some intensive rehab.'

Whilst Britton's injury will only keep him out short term, his fellow midfielder Ferrie Bodde will miss the rest of the season.


But Britton, whose own impressive for has been overshadowed by Bodde, insists the Swans can still succeed without the Dutchman.

"It`s a big blow for us. Losing a player like Ferrie would be for any team in this league. But we are not a one-man team. We never have been and that is one of our main strengths.'

"We can be just as strong without him. It will just be a different kind of strength because we all bring something different to the team."

"It`s never good to lose someone like Ferrie. His passing is something exceptional and it will be hard to replace.'

"But the other boys have been waiting patiently for their chance to come in and show what they can do. And, whoever it is, they won`t let us down."
