'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Britton: We'll Get Stronger And Stronger

Swansea City midfielder Leon Britton believes the Swans can build on Saturday's 1-0 win at Coventry as the team begin to settle into Sousa's plans.

The new manager has kept the same philosophy of how the game should be played. Dominating possession in midfield by playing an attractive passing game. There have been some changes though to Martinez's style. The Portuguese boss insists on having 4 players in the box when we're attacking and we like to get the ball to the wingers as quickly as possible.

The intensity of training and games wouldn't have changed, but adjusting to new methods on the pitch.

Ashley Williams scored his second and Swansea City's second League goal of the season to give us a 1-0 victory away at Coventry City. Leon Britton now believes more wins will follow and we'll continue improving, he told BBC Sport:

'We want to carry on a winning mentality and it all starts with the next game,'

'We can keep improving, I think you haven't seen the best of us.'

'I think as the months go on and we get used to things a bit more, you'll see us getting stronger and stronger.'

'It was always going to take a few games, a new manager and way of playing,'

'Even though we're still passing the ball around there's still his ideas to put into the games and they are starting to come through now, all the stuff we're working on in the training ground.

'I'm sure as the months go on and the games carry on, we'll see more of that coming through.'


The Swans now have two home games this week. We face Scunthorpe United in the Carling Cup second round tomorrow night before entertaining Watford in the Championship on Saturday.
