John Hartson believes Swansea City are strong enough for Europe

Swansea City face Malmo in the third qualifying round of the Europa League at the Liberty Stadium on Thursday - their first European match in more than 20 years.

The Swedish club beat Hibernian 9-0 on aggregate to earn a game against the Swans, and former Wales striker John Hartson believes they will present a tough challenge.

But he thinks Michael Laudrup's squad is strong enough to handle the challenge of European football on top of their Premier League commitments.
