Laudrup: Lets Give Britton A Day To Remember

Laudrup: Lets Give Britton A Day To Remember

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has urged his side to give Leon Britton a 'day to remember' on Saturday, as he looks set to make his 400th appearance for the club.

Britton has earned the right to be regarded as of the club's modern day greats after such dedicated service since he first put on a Swansea City shirt in 2002.

Although he did leave for a brief spell at Sheffield United, he returned home to play a vital role in the club's success in the Premier League.

One of the club's most consistent performers, Leon Britton is a major fan favourite and Laudrup has called for his team to win the game for him on Saturday as they host Reading at the Liberty Stadium.

'It's an important game for us, We are playing at home, against a direct rival, and we want to win.

'These are the games that we have to get points from. We want to get back to the way we were playing in the first three games because that is very important. If we can do that then we can win on Saturday.

'He (Britton) is an institution at the football club and there are not many players that play for so long at one club, particularly in the modern era, so it is great.

'400 games says a lot. Let's hope we can give him a day to remember by winning the game.'


Laudrup believes the match is a 'six-pointer' against of their nearest rivals in terms of League position, he added:

'I don't know if it's must-win but every time you play a direct rival like Reading you can call it a six-pointer because there's a huge difference between getting three or losing three.

'These are the important games, the others we will always try to do our best but these are the ones we need to get points from.

'We have to come back and play the way we did in the first three games.

'We know we can't do it for 38 games but especially at home we must go back to how we played against QPR, West Ham and Sunderland.

'If I do that I'm confident we will win.'
