Michael Duff | We will need a full 90-minute performance

Head coach Michael Duff wants Swansea City to sustain their intensity levels over 90 minutes to build on the positives of their showing against Hull when they take on Leeds United tonight (7.45pm).

The Swans head to Elland Road having won three of their last four games away from home, while the hosts are the only team in the Championship yet to lose on home turf.

Swans boss Duff saw positives to take from how effectively his side were able to press the Tigers in their weekend draw, and then capitalise purposefully in possession, particularly during the first half.

But he believes the Swans will need to hit those levels over a longer period when they face a Leeds side among those heavily fancied as one of the promotion favourites.

"It's Leeds United away from home, so you know the sort of challenge you are going to face," said Duff.

"There will be 35,000 there, they are right up there and they will be looking to bounce straight back after their draw the other night.

"You can see there is a lot of quality in their squad with some players we obviously know well.

"It will be a tough ask, but we want to go there and be on the front foot like we were able to do against Hull. It is down to us to try and sustain that for 90 minutes."
