On the face of it Swansea City v Peterborough United may appear to be a home banker but with one side fighting relegation Britton knows nothing could be further from the truth and he is expecting a tough test at the Liberty Stadium.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Britton said “These are probably the hardest games to play

“People on the outside may look at it and say it is a home banker, but the players don’t look at it like that.

“A team at the bottom of the league, changing manager a few times and fighting for their lives to stay in the division.

“As a team we’re not getting carried away, our feet are on the ground and we know there’s a lot of football to be played between now and the end of the season.

“They’ve shown they’ve got the fighting spirit which they are going to need to try and get out of the position they’re in

“Last year was a case of nearly there, we were hanging around the play-offs,” he said of the Swans who finished eighth, two places and six points short

“We were always nearly there but we were never quite cemented.

“This season we’ve been pretty much in there for large periods now.

“It’s nice to be there but there’s a lot of football to be played and we don’t get carried away.

“We want to make sure we are carrying on the way we are and if we do that the results will come and at the end of the season, hopefully things will look good.”
