Leon Britton: "We showed a lot of character"

Leon Britton praises Swansea City for showing character to secure a 1-1 draw with Stoke City on Wednesday.

Leon Britton has praised Swansea City for showing impressive character in the 1-1 draw with Stoke City on Wednesday night.

Chico Flores earned a point for the visitors with a second-half equaliser to cancel out Peter Crouch's opener at the Britannia Stadium, and Britton was in positive mood when speaking after the game.

"It is very tough going to Stoke. You have to be very strong, as we have found in the last two seasons, and we did exactly that," the midfielder told the club's official website.

"It was a hard-fought point but we showed a lot of character, particularly to come back from a goal down."

Swansea climbed to 10th in the Premier League by collecting a point on Wednesday.
