Swansea defender Alan Tate will not change his game against Scunthorpe at the weekend despite the threat of suspension.

The left-back is currently on four yellow cards and if he was to pick up a fifth of the season at Glanford Park he would miss the South Wales derby against Cardiff with a one-match ban.

But Tate has assured supporters he will not modify his style for the weekend clash.

"Of course it's on your mind when you are on four bookings, but it will just be one of those things if it happens," he told the Evening Post.

"It's something I've been thinking about with the Cardiff game and the Newcastle game coming up, but if it does happen it's just unlucky.

"I won't go into Scunthorpe thinking about it. I won't be shying away from tackles or anything like that, you know that's not me."
