Shelvey: We'll fight for survival

28th March 2014

Jonjo Shelvey insists the Swans are ready to fight tooth-and-nail for a crucial three points against Norwich on Saturday (3pm).

Garry Monk's side hosts the Canaries at the Liberty in what is a vital match for both sides in the battle for Premier League survival.

Going into this weekend's fixture, the Swans sit in 15th position in the league table, five points above the relegation zone, while Norwich are two points and one place above the Swans in 14th.

A win tomorrow afternoon would provide a major boost for either side, heading into the final six games of the season.

And Shelvey is certain that he and his teammates will be doing everything they can to ensure they take maximum points.

"We know what situation we are in," admitted the 22-year-old midfielder. "We need to win games, and a few more wins should see us stay in the Premier League.

"A club like this should be in the Premier League, with the football we play, the fantastic stadium and fantastic supporters that we have.

"Against Norwich, we have to stick to the game plan. We know it will be another tough game, but we are ready to fight for the win.

"We have to keep calm, not get nervous and just play our football.

"When we walk out over that white line, even on the training pitch, we know what we need to do. 

"We know we have to work and fight. Monk's said the other day that every match is going to be a cup match from now until the end of the season.

"It's all about getting the points to make sure we stay in this league."
