Rodgers Aiming To 'Do Well' In Carling Cup

Rodgers Aiming To 'Do Well' In Carling Cup

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says he is looking for his team to 'do well' in the Carling Cup, which starts for them tomorrow away at Shrewsbury in the 2nd round.

The Swans boss says he aims to win every game his team are involved in, but he will name a side that's balanced between having enough quality to win the game but also giving him the opportunity to see some of his youngsters and second-string players.

Rodgers said:

"It`s a competition we would like to do well in. It was one of the agreements we had when we had a meeting between the staff and players in Austria (during pre-season).

"I don`t like to disrespect competitions as I would like to win every game I play with the club, so we will always put out a side that we think can win the game, but also one that gives me the chance to look at players who are working tirelessly in training but may not have had much game time.

"We know where our priorities lie, but we are not putting less importance on it and hopefully we can do well and put in a good performance."


Rodgers also told Wales Online that he's expecting a tough game away at Shrewsbury Town tomorrow night. The League 2 side beat Derby County away 3-2 to progress through to the second round.

"It`s certainly going to be a tough game,"

"We have players who have been on that journey and played at that level. They understand what can happen if your application isn`t right.

"We go there knowing it will be a difficult game. They had a good result at the weekend, they have a fantastic manager with great experience and one or two players than can cause problems.

"So we need to go there and be prepared as we would against any team and do a professional job.

"If we bring our `A` game we will win the game, but we understand Shrewsbury will have a motivation to do well but we are going there to concentrate on doing our job."
