Rodgers confident over Britton

BY foxsports • October 12, 2011

The 29-year-old midfielder is back in training after missing the club's 2-0 win over Stoke with a back problem. Britton had started all six of Swansea's Premier League matches before being forced out of their defeat to Chelsea last month. Rodgers will assess Britton's fitness in the coming days, but the Swans boss remains hopeful he will be fit to face the Canaries. "All being well Leon will be ready for Norwich," Rodgers told the South Wales Evening Post. "He has responded well to treatment and we will see how he goes over the next few days. "He will be a good option for us, although we are not going to complain about the injury problems we've had. "I have got honest players with quality and, whatever team I put out, they will always do their best." Rodgers has no fresh injury concerns ahead of Swansea's trip to Carrow Road on Saturday and he believes his players will have benefited from the international break. "We are in good shape," he continued. "The players have given everything this season. "They have had a little rest now which will be good for them. "They come back motivated and energised ahead of our next batch of games."
