Laudrup wants Swansea derby response - in Russia

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup is seeking an instant response from their derby defeat at Cardiff City.

Laudrup must now rally his players after derby despair for Thursday's Europa League trip to Kuban Krasnodar, the Swansea party facing a five-hour flight to Russia tomorrow morning.

"Yes, it's always good to have another game but it's another competition," he said.

"Our next game in the Premier League is on Sunday... and fortunately the game on Thursday is only a five-hour flight away and a four-hour time difference!

"It's a lot of travelling but I've said a lot of times before the team has character and they will show it.

" I am sure we will see a reaction from the team in our next game because they are so disappointed at this loss."
