SUNDERLAND skipper Lee Cattermole is bracing himself for a difficult Premier League trip to Swansea City.
The Black Cats face a Welsh side who have won both of their opening two top-flight games, netting eight times in the process.
But Sunderland beat the Swans at the Stadium of Light last season and got a credible 0-0 draw on their visit to the Liberty Stadium.
Cattermole said: “Swansea have started like a house on fire.
“But we went there last year and drew there, when Asamoah (Gyan) missed a good chance.
“I’m sure we can go there and cause them a threat.
“They’re a good team but every team can beat everyone. We’ve got to go there and be positive.
“There’s some great attacking players in the squad now, so we can go there and have a go.”
