Andy Fisher | We need to keep showing the level we can perform to
Andy Fisher wants Swansea City to back up the level of performance they showed against Blackburn Rovers when they take on Stoke City tonight (7.45pm).
Goalkeeper Fisher kept his first clean sheet since joining the Swans from MK Dons as Russell Martin’s side secured a 1-0 win over second-placed Rovers at the weekend.
They now head to the Potteries to take on a Stoke side keen to get back among the points after seeing a small gap upon up between themselves and the play-off places.
The Swans showed a mix of substance and style last time out as a strong display on the ball was followed by great resilience without it following Ryan Manning’s red card.
And Fisher wants Swansea City to hit those levels consistently.
“As a squad we know our level hasn’t been up to scratch, but beating a team that are second in the league whilst being a man down shows what level we can get to,” he said.
“We stuck with it, the team spirit was up there and we ground out the result.
“It’s massive for me with a clean sheet but I don’t want to take any credit for that because the lads in front were unbelievable all game.
“They limited their (Blackburn) chances for the whole game, even when we had 10 men.
“I am delighted with the three points on the back of a few bad results, so it is massive for us and the fans, but we just have to keep going now.
“It is my job to help the team out when they (Blackburn) do get a chance and obviously keep the score at 0-0, but like I say I can’t praise the lads enough.”
