Cameron's fond memories

Cameron Carter-Vickers is hoping to be a good omen for his team this weekend as the Swans look to end their run without an away win.

The Swans head to Bolton seeking a first triumph on the road since the comeback win with 10 men against Millwall on September 1.

Since that result, Graham Potter’s men have drawn at Middlesbrough and Wigan while suffering defeats at Stoke, Aston Villa and Rotherham.

But Carter-Vickers has fond memories of playing at Bolton, with the Tottenham loanee having ticked off some firsts during his last trip to the home of the Trotters in September 2017.

“I made my league debut against Bolton for Sheffield United during my time on loan there and I scored the winning goal,” said the American international centre-back.

“It was my only professional goal to date, so I have good memories of playing at Bolton.

“It wasn’t the greatest goal you would have seen, but it meant a lot to me and it was the only goal of the game so that was even better.

“Hopefully I can keep up my record there and score again this weekend!”

The Swans go into the game on the back of a 2-1 defeat at Rotherham, with Potter’s side going down to two late penalties.

But Carter-Vickers, who has made four appearances during his time at the Liberty, believes the Swans are capable of bouncing back.

“I thought we played well against Rotherham and dominated large amounts of the game,” he said.

“I think we must take that performance into this game and turn it into three points.

“Every game in this league is hard. You go into each game focused and prepared.

“With the quality of the squad we have then we are capable of putting in a good performance and picking up points.”
