Swansea Looking For A Bright Start At Blackburn

Swansea City midfielder Leon Britton says the team will be looking to make a bright start at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, as they aim to heap more misery on under-fire boss Steve Kean.

Kean's side are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table and the Swans will see it as a good opportunity tomorrow to pick up their first away win of the season.

Britton says an early goal will help their cause and that the team are aiming to make a bright start:

'If we can get an early goal there may be a bit of unrest among the fans and they could get on the players' backs if we did that.

'If we don't it won't be the be all and end all, we want to win the game and if it takes until the 89th, 90th or 91st minute we'll take that, but we are looking for a bright and quick start.

'I have played in teams getting booed off at half-time and it has an adverse effect.

'People pay their money and are entitled to their opinion but if the team are struggling it's not what you want to hear as players.

'When you see the protests against the manager it must be tough, he has dealt with it well and come out of it with a lot of credit when you consider that every home game they are protesting and wanting him out.

'It's probably worse when you are at home, if you go 1-0 down the fans can get on your back and every misplaced pass is groaned at and you go inside your shell a bit.'
