Put your shirt on Lee.

Byline: By Chris Wathan Wales on Sunday

Lee trundle says he's still worth a play-off punt come next week's Championship decider - even if he does start on the bench, writes Chris Wathan.

Top scorer Trundle could be forced to start the Millennium Stadium showdown as a sub thanks to Leon Knight's red-hot form, despite grabbing more than 20 goals this season.

But Trundle, 29, is still backing himself to make an impact

The Swans idol said: 'It's a big game and the manager has a big decision to make. But just because I've got as many goals as I have this season doesn't mean I automatically get a place in the side.

'We've got here as a squad and there are lads who've played a big part in getting us to where we are who won't even make the bench. But it's a big, big game.

'All of us want to play on big occasions and that's when I produce; I'll be telling a few of my mates to have a little bet on me scoring!'

Trundle admits he wasn't up to his usual high standards towards the end of the season as Swansea suffered an untimely slump that almost cost them their play-off chance.

But the trickster insists he's feeling back to his best and is raring to go.

'I'm over that now,' he said. 'The last two games I've come on and I've felt lively and as good as ever. We've all delivered when it matters this season. Saying it is one thing but we've done it this season too.

'We've done well in the cups this year and this is a cup final; we know we can do it.'
