Potter keen to end losing run

Graham Potter knows that it will not be easy for his Swansea City team to end their losing run when they visit Brentford on Saturday.

The Swans have lost their last three games and have slipped to 13th in the Championship table.

They are 11/4 to beat the Bees at Griffin Park and 33/1 to be promoted to the Premier League at the first time of asking following last season's relegation.

Brentford have struggled since former manager Dean Smith was named as Aston Villa's boss in October and they are 17th in the table.

Thomas Frank succeeded Smith as Bees boss and his side managed to draw 1-1 at West Brom earlier this week.

"I think it will be an exciting game," Potter said. "I watched Brentford play live against West Brom. They had a bit of luck in the first half, when West Brom had a few chances, but you could see their qualities – especially with the ball.

"They have a pattern of play and a clear identity. Perhaps they are having a bit of a transition after Dean left to take over at Aston Villa, but Griffin Park is always a tough place to go.

"It is a tight ground and the crowd will be right on top of us. But we have to deal with that. We will go there looking to win the game."
