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

Britton: Media Coverage Will Be Quieter For Final

Midfielder Leon Britton believes there will be less media coverage surrounding Swansea City as they won't be playing their arch rivals Cardiff City in the Play-Off Final.

Britton, who scored our opener in the 3-1 win against Nottingham Forest on Monday night to take us to Wembley, told BBC Sport that there would have been far more media coverage if it was an all-Welsh final to decide which team won promotion to the Premier League.

'Cardiff [winning] would have meant a lot more scrutiny on the game [final].'

'If it was a Swans-Cardiff final it would have been massive media coverage and especially down in south Wales it would have been a massive thing.

'But obviously the media side of it will be a little bit quieter even though it's still going to be a big build-up to the game.'


Manager Brendan Rodgers will face his previous club Reading in the final, and Britton added:

'Obviously it will be a big day for him [Rodgers], but we just want to win the game - we're not looking to avenge things that maybe didn't work out for him at Reading earlier in his career as a manager.

'We just want to win the game - we don't worry about things like that.'
