Ash's praise for new arrivals

8th February 2015

Ashley Williams praised Swansea's new signings Jack Cork and Kyle Naughton after the duo made their home debuts in the 1-1 draw with Sunderland on Saturday.

The Swans earned a point against the Black Cats after Ki Sung-Yueng made a goal-scoring return to the side to cancel out Jermain Defoe's first-half opener.

New right-back Naughton was the architect of Ki's leveller when he delivered a pin-point cross for the South Korea captain to head home, while Cork put in a solid showing on his first 90 minutes in a Swans shirt.

And the Swans skipper has been impressed with how his new team-mates have settled in since their January arrivals.

"I thought Jack Cork came in today and had a really solid debut, while Kyle (Naughton) set up the goal on his first home game. I felt the new boys did really well and worked hard.

"It will take a bit of time to get used to how we play and our style, but since coming in, they've settled in really well. 

"As a team, we want to push on now and see how far we can go. We dropped off a little bit after Christmas, so we are working hard to get back to the standards we set ourselves."
