Leon Britton is looking for Swansea to respond positively to their Chelsea disappointment and start picking up points on their travels.

The fact that the Swans camp has an air of despondency hanging over it at the moment says a lot about the progress they have made in a short space of time.

Most Premier League newcomers would be delighted to hold Chelsea to a 1-1 draw on home soil but, having come within minutes of claiming a shock success, the Swans are setting lofty targets nowadays.

They will have the chance to get back to winning ways on Saturday when they go to West Brom, but Brendan Rodgers' side have struggled to replicate their home form on the road this term.

Their solitary away day success did come in the West Midlands, at Aston Villa, but they know they have to start producing performances on a more regular basis.

Britton hopes they can start to move in the right direction this weekend, with the Chelsea stalemate having offered added motivation to a squad that is determined not to let all of their hard work go to waste.


"The changing room was very quiet after the Chelsea game, but the manager told us to keep our heads up," the Swans midfielder told the club's official website.

"It was a tale of two halves. We dominated possession and used the ball well, and the goal was a great finish from Scotty (Sinclair).

"In the second half we had to be resilient. They had a lot of the ball but Michel (Vorm) wasn't troubled much.

"So it's harder to take, but football can be a cruel game at times."

He added: "We will get back into training and we will lift our heads up for the trip to West Brom on Saturday.

"We knew home form would be crucial in this league, but we have to pick up some away wins too."
