Leon's delight at winning return

2nd December 2014

Leon Britton was delighted to see his first start of the season end in victory as the Swans saw off Queens Park Rangers at the Liberty.
The midfielder missed the first third of the campaign with a knee injury but returned as a substitute in last month's win over Arsenal before making his maiden start against the R's.
The Swans dominated from start to finish under the Liberty lights and broke the deadlock with just 12 minutes to play as Ki Sung-Yueng saw his low shoot creep in off the far post.
The home side made the game safe just a few minutes later as Wayne Routledge capitalised on sloppy defending from the visitors to fire past Rob Green.
Indeed, the England goalkeeper made a number of fine stops to keep the hosts at bay throughout, but Britton was delighted to see the Swans claim a fifth home win of the season.


"It was important for us to get the win," he said. "We were disappointed not to pick up three points on Saturday against Crystal Palace, but the boys played well and we're delighted.
"We had to be patient but I thought we dominated the game. It was a great finish from Ki and Wayne's goal killed it off.
"If there was one team that was going to score it was going to be us."
He added: "I was delighted to be out there again for my first start.
"It's been a long road for me, but it's great to be back. I was hoping to last as long as I did but I'm pleased to be part of a winning result."
