Swans determined to make up for Leicester loss, insists Routledge
21st April 2015
Wayne Routledge insists the Swans head to his former club Newcastle United determined to make up for last weekend's setback at Leicester City.
Garry Monk's side went down 2-0 to the Foxes, who boosted their hopes of beating the drop thanks to goals from Leonardo Ulloa and Andy King.
It ended a three-match unbeaten run for the Swans, who now visit the North East to take on a Newcastle side that has lost its last six games.
And Routledge, who arrived at the Liberty from Newcastle in 2011, insists the Swans are desperate to move on from their loss at the King Power Stadium.
"It was a very disappointing result and performance against Leicester," said Routledge.
"They are fighting for their lives and we didn't start on the front foot like we want to.
"When you go a goal down away from home it is difficult, but we go to St James' Park looking to come away with at least a point.
"Since I've come to the club it's been on an upward trend, and we want to ensure we finish this season on a record points total."
