Cameron Carter-Vickers reckons Swansea City can maintain their unbeaten run on the road as they get set for tricky trips to Stoke and Middlesbrough.

The Swans have taken seven points from a possible nine away from the Liberty Stadium this season having won at Sheffield United and Millwall and scrapped their way to a goalless draw at Birmingham.

Graham Potter’s men can expect two big tests this week, starting at Stoke tonight (8pm) and then at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

But Carter-Vickers believes the Swans have the quality and character to keep their undefeated sequence going.

“These two games will be tough,” Carter-Vickers said.

“No games are easy in the Championship so we know we need to raise our game and be at our best to keep up our record away from home.

“You go into every game hoping to win and we as a squad want to maintain that unbeaten run away from home.

“Both Stoke and Middlesbrough are sides with recent Premier League experience who, like us, are hungry to get back to the top. We need to ensure we are at our best. It should be a good game full of quality.”

Carter-Vickers hopes for more action tonight after making his Swans debut during last Saturday’s goalless draw against Nottingham Forest.

The USA international, who featured in his country’s friendly win against Mexico last week, came off the bench to play just over 20 minutes against Forest and help the Swans claim another point in the Championship.

“I have only been here a few weeks,” said Carter-Vickers, who is on loan from Spurs.

“I have had a chance to settle in and get to know everyone, and I have been really impressed with the games we have played away from home.

“With the squad we have, we are definitely capable of getting three points from any game in the Championship if we play to the best of our ability.”
