Williams: No Pressure Despite Being Favourites

Williams: No Pressure Despite Being Favourites

Swansea City defender Ashley Williams says they won't feel any added pressure despite being strong favourites to win the Capital One Cup at Wembley on Sunday.

The Swans have been used to be the underdogs since their promotion to the Premier League in 2011 and they have reveled in it, but this time the roles are reversed, and they'll be strong favourites to beat Bradford City to lift their first major Cup in their 100-year history.

After being rested for last Sunday's 5-0 defeat at Liverpool, Williams is set to return to the starting line-up, where he'll be partnered by either Garry Monk or Kyle Bartley, as Chico Flores will definitely miss the game.

Despite being strong favourites - something the Swansea players aren't used to, Williams insists that they'll feel no added pressure:

"We are normally the underdogs, but in this case we will be the favourites,"

"But we won`t be feeling any pressure.

"It`s a very interesting game - Swansea versus Bradford in a final. Not many people would have predicted that.

"We are not putting any pressure on ourselves, though, we just want to go out there and play our game."

"Once it got the quarter-final stage we said it would be great to lift it together should the chance arise,"

"We did actually say that in the Play-Off Final, but he didn`t wait for me!"

Congrats Jacks, as predicted a one sided affair but very worthy winners of the competition, well in.
