The Blackpool manager accused the Swansea City midfielder of diving in the earlier meeting between the two sides at the Liberty back in October.

Now the two come face to face again on Tuesday when Britton will line up for the promotion chasing Swans who will be looking for their first win in four games.

Britton said "I was shocked when I heard Ian Holloway accuse me of diving.   I'm not a diver and never have been.  I pride myself on being an honest player.

"If I went down in that game it was because I was brought down by one of his players.   Anyone who has watched me play for Swansea over the last eight years will agree.  I'm not a cheat."
