Sunderland boss Steve Bruce says he's looking forward to Saturday's challenge at Swansea City.
The former Manchester United player complimented Swansea's recent rising success and he's fully aware of the threat they pose this weekend.
'You have to say, what Swansea have done over the last few years is fantastic,'
'It wasn't so long ago that they were almost out of the league.
'As always, we look forward to the challenge and we know it will be a big, big game for us.
'They play their own style and the two wide lads get at you and they have a certain way of playing that has served them well over a few years now. They seem comfortable in doing it and we know what to expect.'
'They're cock-a-hoop from getting promoted to the Premier League.
'Blackpool are a prime example last season of a promoted team who took the league by storm to start with and certainly Swansea have played some very good football over the last two or three years and we have to compliment them on that.
'But we've shown so far this season that we can play as well and we'll go there in the belief we can get a win and kick-start our season.'
Sunderland picked up a good point on the opening day of the season, drawing 1-1 at Liverpool but that was followed by a disappointing defeat against their arch-rivals Newcastle United.
They, like Swansea City, will be looking for their first League win of the season.
