Leon Britton says he is expecting a tough opening match on Saturday at Leicester City.

The Foxes made an instant return to the second tier after winning the League One title last season after the Swansea midfielder is expecting Saturday’s opposition to be full of confidence.

Britton told the Evening Post:

‘It’s going to be a tough start for us,’

‘We have got to make sure we are ready from the off otherwise we are going to be in trouble.

‘They are going to be wanting to start well in front of their own fans and they will come at us at 100 miles an hour.

‘When you play a team who have just come up they are always going to be full of confidence.

‘Last year we were new to the division and we didn’t know what to expect,’

‘Now we have had a season at this level and that experience will help us.

‘We are better equipped in terms of knowing how to win games and we have got to try to hit the ground running and put ourselves in a good position early on.
