BRITTON PROUD OF SWANS' ACHIEVEMENTS
Midfielder Leon Britton has praised the impact of Swansea during their first season in the Barclays Premier League as they look to clinch survival via Saturday's visit to Bolton.
Britton believes it will be an "incredible" achievement if the Swans secure a second season of top-flight football.
Victory at the Reebok Stadium would banish any lingering fears of an instant return to the npower Championship and the Swans need only two points from their final four games to avoid that scenario.
Britton told Swansea's official website: "Looking back at the season, it has been absolutely incredible for us. We couldn't have asked for much more than what we have achieved so far.
"It's safe to say, if we had been offered this position at the start of the season then we'd have certainly taken it.
"The target at the start of the campaign was to stay up. We have a chance on Saturday to make sure we will be in the Premier League next season.
"Of course, it could be that another team's result will be good enough for us to stay up, but you always concentrate only on yourselves in order to get the result you want."
Swansea eased any fears of being sucked into a late relegation dogfight with last week's win over Blackburn ending a run of four successive defeats against Everton, Tottenham, Newcastle and QPR
Britton said: "The win over Blackburn was massive for us. It came after four defeats in a row and I can't remember that happening in my time here.
"Some of the performances in those defeats were quite pleasing, but the QPR display obviously wasn't up to our standards and the squad and manager apologised to the supporters for that.
"That defeat proved that you can't drop your standards by any level. It was a bolt out of the blue and was certainly a kick up the backside for us.
"But we showed what we are all about against Blackburn. It underlined the character in this squad. We knew we owed the fans a performance and we delivered."
Britton has warned of the danger Bolton could pose through former Swansea player Darren Pratley, who scored his first goal for the Trotters in the FA Cup clash between the sides.
Britton said: "Everyone here knows and respects what Prats did for us. He helped us through the leagues and played a massive part in that.
"I don't think anyone will forget his goal against Nottingham Forest in the play-off semi-final at the Liberty.
"He scored his first Bolton goal against us up there in the FA Cup. It was always going to happen like that I suppose.
"Bolton are battling against relegation and it's tough for a new player at a club when that happens because a lot is expected of you. I found that out at Sheffield United.
"But we are all well aware of his quality, so we'll have to keep him quiet on Saturday."
