Brendan Rodgers has full confidence in his team to adapt their approach to games ahead of Saturday's tough trip to Scunthorpe United.
The Swansea City manager realises his team much adapt their style, particularly away from home to win games, as they travel to Scunthorpe United tomorrow looking to make it 5 wins in 5 games.
The Iron boss, Ian Baraclough believes the Swans won't enjoy visiting Glanford Park - playing against a battling team on a bumpy playing surface, but Rodgers knows his team have to adapt to different surroundings.
Rodgers again talked about Spanish Champions Barcelona - the team he tries to model his on.
'I believe we have shown in the last four weeks that we can cope with whatever kind of game comes at us,'
'My model is Barcelona. I study them and the way they do things and I have watched games where they go away and the environment isn't right.
'Whether it's a bad pitch or difficult conditions, they adapt.
'And we have shown we can do that as well.
'We can respond when we go behind, we can deal with the direct ball and we can play football.
'We are not just a pretty football team, we are a very, very good one.'
Rodgers says he's looking forward to the game but admits it's another tough one:
'I am actually really looking forward to it.
'I am going there with a team who were not always the free-flowing side they are now.
'Players like Alan Tate, Leon Britton and Ashley Williams have spent much of their careers in the lower leagues playing at grounds like this.
'It hasn't been all singing and all dancing for them, with nice pitches and nice stadiums.
'We'll not be complaining about the pitch or the small changing rooms at Glanford Park.
'It's going to be a difficult game for us, but the mentality of the group is strong and we'll go there to play how we play.
'You don't win promotions by winning in front of the camera and a big crowd on a lovely pitch with the sun shining, you win them by winning games like this.'
'Scunthorpe have picked up at home, and they were unlucky to have a good goal disallowed when I watched them at Portsmouth in the week.
'They will have confidence from their last three home results and they are fighting for their lives.'
