Swansea City's little central midfielder Jason Britton put in a brilliant shift in the first leg and he got off to a brilliant start in tonight's game against Nottingham Forest, and he's arguably been the most influential player over the first 120 minutes of play in this 2011 nPower Championship Playoff Semifinal tie. So, it's only fitting that he's the man who has scored the opening goal, putting his team ahead 1-0 and doing what each team's strikers have failed to do thus far.
Based on the fantastic goalkeeping and last ditch defending so far in this tie, it felt like it was going to take something truly special for either team to score, and Britton has delivered it. In the 29th minute, during a patient Swansea build-up, Forest's defense anticipated a pass by Britton and gave him entirely too much room. From the left side of the penalty area, he cut inside on his left foot and took a fantastic curling shot with his left foot, putting the ball into the back of the net from 19 yards out.
