Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer says he can handle the kicks he receives in the Premier League.

Chelsea's Ashley Cole saw red when he cut down the former Southampton kid in the closing moments of Tuesday's 1-1 draw.

But Dyer could not care less about the bumps and bruises and vowed: "I certainly don't worry about it. I just carry on. I'm a bit jinky, so that's what happens.

"I won't shy away from the rough and tumble. Some players do try and kick you and make you scared. That's the test.

"You can show your weakness or keep going back for more."
