Augustien ready to answer the call as Swansea struggle with defensive replacements

Midfielder Kemy Agustien has been training as defensive cover for Swansea as injuries and player’s awaiting international clearance have left Swans boss Brendan Rodgers stretched at the back.

The list of absentees leaves Rodgers with Ashley Williams and Steven Caulker as his only fit centre-halves for the trip to Arsenal.

And while Dutchman Agustien admits he does not enjoy playing at the back, he is ready to lend a hand.

He said: "You have got to do what you have got to do, we all know the problems, it's not my favourite position but if I need to play there and help the team then I will.

"It's about the team and I will do it. I do not want to disappoint anyone. If the manager puts me there it is because he thinks I have the qualities.

"It doesn't really matter who we are playing against if I have to play there. It is not going to be easy, but I will always give my best for the team."
