Barrow ready to hit the ground running

27th July 2016

Mood Barrow believes he's getting sharper by the game as he prepares to hit the ground running at the start of the 2016-17 Premier League season.

The flying winger capped off an impressive second-half display with two assists and a goal to his name as the Swans beat Swindon Town on Thursday night.

Barrow teed up Andre Ayew for the game's 50th-minute opener before finding Jay Fulton with a pin-point free-kick and notching Swansea's third of the evening 20 minutes from time.

The Gambia international raced on to Jefferson Montero's fabulous over-the-top ball before sliding past Swindon goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux.

"Yes, it was a good half for me," said Barrow, reflecting on his second-half impact. "I feel myself getting sharper game-by-game, getting better and getting quicker.

"It's good to get another win too, which will help us start the season with confidence.

"But the most important thing is to get some more playing time. As a group, we need to keep getting fitter and work as hard as possible.

"We're working hard in training to make sure we're ready for the new season. We will continue that by preparing for Wolves next weekend."
