Britton warns Swansea to keep the momentum going

Leon Britton has warned Swansea not let their focus slip if they are to remain in the Premiership for a second season. Swansea meet Norwich on Saturday, the team they came up from the Championship with last season.

Both have confounded pre-season expectations that they would make a swift return to the Championship, and both are currently on track for comfortable mid-table finishes.

The 29-year-old said: "Our main aim is to survive in the league. That was always the main priority. We are 10th but we need to take one games at a time. We can't afford to get too far ahead of ourselves.

"There was no points target at the start of the season and even now, the gaffer doesn't say anything.

"He just asks us to keep our standards up in training and to play as we did at West Brom last weekend.

"I don't think we can look any further than our performances, because if we perform to our level, we would hope to win a few of the remaining 14 games."

Britton admits he has been delighted to see Swansea and Norwich do so well this term, proving the strength of the Championship by sticking with the majority of the squads that secured promotion.

"All credit to both sides," he said.

"We are in February and tomorrow's game is a mid-table match. I don't think too may would have predicted that at the beginning of the season.

"Both clubs deserve credit. They are hungry and though they have added some players, there have not been wholesale changes."
