Britton: We Can't Have Regrets This Season

Britton: We Can't Have Regrets This Season

Leon Britton says the team can't have any regrets this season and think 'what if' as they target promotion to the Premier League.

Swansea City have let their 2nd place position slip away following a poor run of results recently - failing to win in the last 3 games and picking up just a single point after defeats at Scunthorpe United and Derby County.

Leon Britton insists we can't have the same feeling as last season, regrets and 'what ifs' as we failed to beat Doncaster Rovers on the final day of the season to secure a play-off place.

Swansea City can go one better this year and aim for automatic promotion, but after some poor results, Norwich City have kept their consistency going and they've now moved ahead us - 3 points clear in 2nd as we drop to 3rd.

Britton said:

"That`s one of the worst feelings you can get in football,"

"To be left wondering to yourself 'what if` is just horrible because it can eat away at you.

"You want to be in a position where you don`t have any regrets, whether you`re successful or not.

"Last year that wasn`t the case and there were definitely games that you`d go over in your mind and look back at them thinking we should have done this or that and that we could have got the win that would have made the difference.

"Your can`t put yourself in that position and at the end of this season we don`t want to look back to this spell of three games - or any other - and start thinking if only we picked up more points."


Leon Britton and Darren Pratley came on as second half substitutes at Derby County on Saturday and they helped us attempt a comeback from 2-0. We showed an improvement but we could manage to get 1 goal back to lose 2-1.

Britton is hoping the performance was enough to earn a starting place this weekend:

"I don`t know if what me and Prats did is enough to get the nod,"

"You obviously hope so because you want to play every game, but at the same time I understand the situation that it might not be the case for whatever the reason.

"I did my best to try and get the team back in it at Derby and we managed to get a goal and make a few chances where we could have maybe even nicked something.

"We`ll see what happens against Forest but it`s always about being ready when you`re called upon and that`s what I`ll make sure of."
