Unlucky against Arsenal! I remember Swansea being a bit of a bogey team for the Gunners for a while and I have no doubt you'll become something similar in no time at all
Britton discusses promotion pressure
Britton's Swansea side currently sit second in the Championship table
Swansea boss Leon Britton has stated that the battle for automatic promotion brings a "new type of pressure," as all three favourites have struggled in recent games.
Middlesbrough, Swansea City and Sheffield Wednesday currently occupy the top three positions. Tony Pulis' side have been top since mid-September, but have seen the gap between themselves and their rivals minimise over the course of the last few months, with Swansea now level on points with a single game to play in March.
Sheffield Wednesday now sit six points behind the top two, in their quest to win promotion back to the Premier League; a division they were last in 2000. They've won just two of their last six games and manager Jos Luhukay has admitted his side are "crumbling under the pressure."
Each side have struggled this month, with Boro losing their last two games to Preston and Aston Villa, whilst Swansea have managed just one win - but have remained unbeaten.
Britton said: "Situations like these bring new challenges. The pressure intensifies massively and it brings a new type of pressure. It's getting to everybody, at the top and at the bottom. It's only natural for the weight of expectation to play a factor. Players aren't robots at the end of the day. It's a question of who can compose themselves first."
"We have a extremely young squad. However, that won't be an excuse on my part. It's the squad I assembled and I have full faith in them to carry out the job - that being winning promotion back to the Premier League. We've had a great season and now it's vital we see it out."
His side travel to the City Ground to face Nottingham Forest to conclude the month. Middlesbrough host Norwich and Wednesday will travel to the Bet 365 Stadium to play Stoke City.
April promises to be a vital month for each of the top three, especially the current top two. The month begins with a clash that could make or break either sides campaign, when Swansea host Middlesbrough at the Liberty Stadium on Friday 5th April.
"We take one game at a time." Britton said. "Each game is important as the other - you don't receive extra points for winning certain games. We know the task at hand in every game and go into each knowing that nothing other than three points isn't good enough. That is the mentality shared between myself and the players." He concluded.
Justice: I was gutted about the result, I have to admit. However, yeah, that Millwall game was the complete opposite. I got moaned at for shouting in celebration...
Griffin: Swansea were a tricky side to beat not too long ago in the PL. Hopefully we'll become that side in the near future, again.
