SWANSEA City youngster has been knocked out and lost teeth in a sickening clash with Walsall's Tom Bradshaw.Kingsley was playing just his third game for Yeovil Town at Huish Park last night after joining the League One strugglers on loan.But the 20-year-old lasted just 12 minutes of the Glovers' 1-0 defeat after a horror collision which boss Terry Skiverton felt knocked his team out of their stride.I just think it was a sickening injury and we'd been playing well up until...

THE assumption is every singer wants to exercise his or her vocal chords every now and then — unless your name is Adele, in which case you will make the peculiar decision to go Trappist at the height of your powers.At this rate, four years, one month, eight days, seven hours and maybe 10 seconds after the release of her last album, the award-winning, chart-topping 21, named after the age of the singer during production, we can perhaps expect the next one to be entitled 73, we do not know....

KYLE Walker has made the questionable claim that Swansea City could be intimidated by Tottenham Hotspur's performance in the Capital One Cup final. Spurs aim to bounce back from their 2-0 loss to Chelsea at Wembley last Sunday by seeing off Swansea in the Premier League tomorrow night. And England international Walker reckons Garry Monk's men may wilt at White Hart Lane having seen Spurs produce a decent performance as they slumped to defeat last weekend. "It's not been the best of weeks but we...

GARRY Monk wants to take Swansea City back into Europe – but insists he is not thinking about the prospect of Continental competition at the Liberty next season. Swansea could move to within a point of seventh-placed Tottenham with a win at White Hart Lane on Wednesday. And depending on who wins the FA Cup this season, it may be that the side who finish the campaign in seventh end up in the Europa League. But with so many heavyweight clubs above Swansea in the table, Monk has played down...

JONJO Shelvey reckons Swansea City could finally land a victory over Tottenham Hotspur if they play with the same desire which delivered three points at Burnley. Swansea have lost their last six games against Spurs, the latest reverse coming in December when Christian Eriksen struck an 89th-minute winner at the Liberty. In their seven meetings with the White Hart Lane club since promotion to the Premier League, Swansea have claimed just one point — when Scott Sinclair scored late on in a...

BURNLEY manager Sean Dyche felt his side could have been awarded a penalty when Sam Vokes was challenged by Neil Taylor at Turf Moor.The Clarets had two shouts for a spot-kick, the first when the ball grazed Federico Fernandez's arm in the area before Vokes was denied amid suggestions of a tug from the Swansea City left-back.Though the home crowd screamed for action, referee Jon Moss remained unmoved.We value our honesty, Vokes goes down to head it, he definitely gets dragged round his...

Burnley 0 Swansea City 1: How the players fared at Turf Moor

IT was hardly a vintage game at Turf Moor, but Stephen Ware saw many positive performances from within the visitors' ranks.  Lukasz Fabianski: Rarely tested, the Polish goalkeeper did well to repel an Ashley Barnes shot early on in one of the few moments he was called into action.Kyle Naughton: Created width with excellent runs overlapping Ki Sung-Yueng. The full-back was mostly neat and tidy, but lost possession in dangerous positions on occasions. Ashley Williams: Sporting a...

Garry Monk eyes record Premier League points haul after Burnley...

GARRY Monk has honed in on Swansea City's record Premier League points total after a 1-0 victory over Burnley took them to the 40-mark in record time. Swansea have never reached the number normally regarded as rubber-stamping top flight survival so quickly since returning to the highest level four years ago. Next Monk is aiming to race past the 47 they racked up in 2012-12. "Getting to 40 points is the first port of call for any club in the league, especially outside of the bigger...
