. . . as Swans get set for crunch Stoke clash

Leon Britton reckons Swansea City’s fans have a pivotal part to play as Paul Clement’s men bid to pull clear of relegation danger.
The Swans are two points adrift of safety with just five games of a traumatic campaign remaining.
But Britton believes Clement’s side have the blend of quality and character required to put together a season-saving run over the next four weeks. 
The Swans face Stoke City on Saturday, the first of three home fixtures which remain in 2016-17.
And Britton believes the Jack Army can have a hand in ensuring their team deliver a much-needed victory.

“Stoke is the biggest game we have had in a long time,” the club skipper said.
“And whenever we have had big games in the past, our fans have always played a vital role for us.
“They have helped us achieve all the things we have achieved during my time at the club and we need them to do it again for us now.”
As well as Stoke, the Swans will play Everton and West Brom in front of their own crowd before the season comes to an end.
Their other two fixtures are at Manchester United and Sunderland, with Clement suggesting three victories from here on in will give his team a chance of finishing outside the bottom three.
“Every game is going to be vital now, but we have three left at home and our home form has been good over the last few months,” Britton added.

“Our fans have played a part in the victories we have had. You hear it said a lot that supporters can make a difference, but that’s because it’s true.
“If things are not going well or you are starting to tire, hearing the fans getting behind you can drive you on.
“We all know it’s been a difficult season but, if we put together a good run now, we could give ourselves a chance of staying up.
“If we are going to make it happen, we need everyone fighting together, and I know our fans will do everything they can to help.
“Hopefully, we can do our bit as players and give them something to shout about.”

For Saturday's game, we have extra tickets on sale after Stoke returned some of their allocation.
