Former Swansea City fans-favourite and Bristol City striker Lee Trundle says the Swans will do really well in the Championship next season.

Roberto Martinez has achieved automatic promotion in his first ever season as a manager and his former colleague Lee Trundle is confident the success will continue, he told BBC Sport:

‘I think they’ll come into the division and do really well,’

‘I’d say Swansea are similar side to us,’

‘They like to get the ball down and play football.

‘There are the odd teams that are more physical and they like to get the ball forward more but this is a league where you can play football as well.

‘I’ve got no doubt that Swansea’ll come into the division and that they’ll settle real quickly.

‘It is tougher because you’re playing against better players, better teams but you’ve only got look at our form this season and the way we’ve gone.’

‘I knew that as soon as Roberto came into his own and had a fresh start at the new season that he’d do well,’

‘He likes to get the ball down and play football. That’s how he was a player and he’s brought that through into his management.

‘He loves his football and that’s showed in the way the team’s played this year.

‘It would perfect all round to see Swansea come up to the Championship and then for us to go up to the Premier League.

‘That’s my dream come true, I’ve always wanted to play at the highest level and I’m three games away from it now so hopefully it can be a great year for both clubs.’
