Byers: Let's kick on from here

George Byers wants Swansea City to kick on from their win over Millwall and put together another strong run of results.

The Swans head to Leeds on Wednesday on the back of a hard-fought 1-0 win over the Lions in SA1, a result which moved Graham Potter's men up to 11th in the table.

It was the ideal response to defeat at Bristol City, which had seen a run of seven games without defeat come to an end.

Byers got the only goal - his first senior goal for the Swans - and was delighted to get off the mark in front of the Jack Army.

And he wants Swansea to build on that result with the season now inside its final third.

“I have had to wait patiently for my opportunity with the team doing well," said the midfielder.

“It is a great experience being out there and playing for the Swans. It is what I have been working towards since joining the side.

“It is an unbelievable experience to play in front of the fans, they are different gravy.

“The win was the perfect way to bounce back from the defeat against Bristol City. It gives us the chance to go on another little run and get a few more results going forward.”
