Britton backs strikers to shine

Leon Britton hopes Wilfried Bony and Michu's burgeoning partnership will ensure Malmo's defence endure another night to forget at Swedbank Stadion on Thursday.

They are on the same wavelength. Good players understand each other's games. Any partnership takes time to develop and that's why they'll only get better the longer they have.

It's still very early for them. When Wilfried signed he wasn't here for the first week because he had to get a work permit, but the partnership looks very promising and gives us a new dimension.

Michu showed last season what a player he is and now Wilfried comes in and scores two on his debut. It is very exciting.

He's not been here long, it's the early stages, but the partnership looks very promising.
