Ashley Williams on where he thinks Swansea can beat West Brom

Swansea City captain Ashley Williams feels the pressure for West Brom playing at home could work in favour of his team.

Swansea City captain Ashley Williams has suggested to Wales Online where the Swans might have a slight advantage against Tony Pulis’s West Brom.

Swansea take on the Baggies this Wednesday and while Williams expects a difficult test, he’s suggested an aspect of the game his side can play on.

“You know with Tony Pulis sides, they’re going to be very organised and difficult to beat. It’s about us trying to break them down, but they’re at home so they’ll have to come out a little bit,” said Williams.

What Williams as the side’s captain and Garry Monk as the club’s manager have to do is ensure that the Swans start the game and stay disciplined.

If Swansea are patient, there’s every chance they can drag West Brom onto them and that’s when they can pounce and take advantage of space left in behind, which can be exploited on the counter attack.

It’s a risk because Swansea may have to take a bit of pressure from the Baggies before they get a chance to press forward and try to take control of the game.

However, the Swans have some very experienced players who should help to keep the side organised during difficult periods of the game.

Swansea could draw level on points with West Ham by the time the mid-week games are over and it’s a great chance for them to show the tactical intelligence they have against a team, who are never easy to play against.
