Savage: I'd Bet On Swansea City To Go Up

Former Welsh international and Derby County midfielder Robbie Savage is confident Swansea City can win promotion.

Savage is not exactly liked amongst the Swansea City fans but the BBC pundit believes they can repeat the 1981 top flight promotion.

Savage told BBC Sport:

'I'd like nothing more than to see both teams in the Premier League - it's fantastic,'

'And add to that Wrexham doing great in the Conference and Welsh football is on the up,'

'With Gary Speed with the Welsh squad, it's a fantastic time for Welsh football.'

'Cardiff has got a lot of high-profile strikers and it's going to be interesting to see which one of the two finishes higher and maybe get to the Premier League.

'If I was a betting man I'd put my money on Swansea because I think they are more of a team unit.

'But Cardiff are more equipped for the Premier League because of the individual players they've got - Craig Bellamy, Jay Boothroyd and Michael Chopra.

'Their manager [Dave Jones] has also managed in the Premier League but I still think Swansea have got the better chance,'

'It will be great to be back in Cardiff,'

'Playing in Wales still has a little spice for me because believe it or not the Welsh fans give me huge amounts of grief.'
