Williams voices Swansea fears

Swansea captain Ashley Williams has conceded that the Welsh club could be dragged into a relegation battle if their poor run of form continues.

Michael Laudrup's side are on a run of seven Premier League games without a win, which stretches back to the 3-0 home victory over Newcastle on December 4.

Swansea's poor form has been blamed on the amount of injuries that they have sustained to key players over the course of the season so far.

The Swans are currently missing a host of stars which includes Michel Vorm, Jonathan de Guzman, Nathan Dyer, Pablo Hernandez and last season's top scorer Michu.

Laudrup's side has endured a testing run of fixtures of late, having played four of the top six in recent weeks.

Williams told the Daily Star: "We have to be concerned about relegation, so we need to get a win.

"We just need to learn a few lessons quickly and need to get a bit of experience in the critical moments.

"But we have to feel confident that what we've got in our dressing room is enough to take us well away from that."

Williams added: "We knew we had a tough run against Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham."

"We've played well in all the games, but we're just not getting the result."
