South Wales Evening Post:
Huw Jenkins: Swansea City are ready for Europa League adventure

Huw Jenkins insists Swansea City would relish a crack at the Europa League next season, declaring: "Of course we are ready."
Swansea will be heading into continental competition for the first time since 1991 if they beat Bradford City in Sunday's Capital One Cup final.
​Swansea have never previously qualified for Europe via the English system.
And though there are some who say a Europa League campaign could hamper Swansea domestically next season, Jenkins is adamant the club would cope.
Asked if Swansea are geared up for a European adventure, he declared: "Of course we are.
"If we are lucky enough to get that chance, we will try 100 per cent to make a success of it and to enjoy it.
"We will ignore the fact that many other clubs just moan about the Europa League because of the travelling involved and the number of games you have to play.
"I would view getting into the Europa League as a massive opportunity for us.
"If you look back a few years, going into Europe would be far better than where we could have been travelling to if we had ended up driving around the country playing Conference games."

Wales Online:
Swansea City star Kyle Bartley dreaming of place in Wembley final

Swansea City defender Kyle Bartley hopes he's done enough to secure a place in Michael Laudrup's Wembley XI.
Bartley has played in Swansea's last two Premier League games and admits he would be "massively disappointed" to miss out on a starting berth for the Capital One Cup final clash with Bradford City on Sunday.
A spot in Laudrup's back four is up for grabs after Spanish defender Chico Flores damaged his ankle in the win over Queens Park Rangers on February 9.
Flores has not yet been ruled out of the Wembley final, although club doctors say it is very unlikely the 25-year-old will recover in time to play a part.
His absence means £1m summer signing Bartley or club captain Garry Monk should fill the void alongside Wales captain Ashley Williams.
Monk has played twice as many games as Bartley this season but the former Arsenal youngster has impressed in his five appearances for Laudrup's side.
"I hope I've done enough to be involved," said Bartley.
"It's a massive game and one that I want to play in.
"The reason I came to Swansea is that I want to play games and I'm not going to lie, I'll be massively disappointed if I'm not playing.
"I feel I've done myself justice in the games I've played this season and hopefully that will be enough to get the nod.
"It would be my first experience of a cup final, like a lot of the boys, and it would be a huge occasion for me."

Daily Mail:
The fans can win the cup for us! Rangel hails noisy Swansea supporters

Angel Rangel says Swansea will win the Capital One Cup final against Bradford if the fans make the same noise as they did at the 2011 Wembley play-off final.
The right back said: "It was as if the supporters were on the pitch alongside us."
If Swansea win they will be the first Welsh side to pick up the League Cup.
"Everyone is very excited around the city. We feel the excitement of the supporters. We understand how important this is to everyone," said the Spaniard.
