The best will come, says Bony

Wilfried Bony is confident he will rediscover the form which made him such a big hit at Swansea City.

The Ivory Coast international made his second debut for the club last weekend when he came off the bench in the 1-0 defeat to Newcastle.

He followed that up by playing just over 60 minutes for Swans Under-23s on Monday night, with Bony scoring in a 5-2 win over Derby at the Liberty.

The 28-year-old, who scored 34 goals in 70 appearances during his first stint in SA1, now hopes to get more minutes under his belt this weekend as Paul Clement’s side head to Wembley to take on Tottenham Hotspur.

And Bony believes he can find the same scoring form which saw him become a huge fans’ favourite in South West Wales.

“It was good for me to get some more minutes in the week because I haven’t played much in the last eight months or so,” said Bony.

“I spoke to the manager last week about playing for the U23s as it was a good opportunity for me to get back to where I need to be.

“It’s always good to score no matter what level it is at. Goals are so important for your confidence as a striker.

“I am going to keep working and I know the best will come. I am sure about that.”

Tottenham go into the game on the back of a 3-1 home victory over German side Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Wednesday.

And Bony feels the Swans are capable of putting in a big performance against Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

“It’s going to be a difficult game but we will fight for the points,” he added.

“We were disappointed with the performance and result last weekend against Newcastle, but now we head to Wembley and hopefully we can put in a big performance.”
