Rodgers Expecting 'Tough Afternoon' At Leeds

Rodgers Expecting 'Tough Afternoon' At Leeds

Brendan Rodgers says he's expecting a tough afternoon at Elland Road tomorrow when his Swansea side face Leeds United.

The Swans are back in action tomorrow after a two-week international break and Rodgers will be happy to see that none of the 9 players away on international duty came back with any injuries.

Darren Pratley misses out as he serves a one-match ban for his red card against Burnley. Joe Allen and Andrea Orlandi are the main players competing for a place in the centre of midfield.

Although Rodgers is expecting a tough game, he's confident his side can perform at Elland Road:

'We will have a very tough afternoon tomorrow,'

'Simon (Grayson) has done an excellent job getting Leeds promoted under great pressure, and I'm sure they'll want to kick on.

'But I know my players are capable of going to any ground in this league and winning. We can go to a difficult place like Leeds and perform.'


Both teams have won two games so far this season. Swansea City lost their other 2 games while Leeds United have also drawn 1 and lost 1.
