Carroll hoping to keep starting place

11th January 2015

Tom Carroll is hoping to keep his place in the starting line-up following a positive display against West Ham on Saturday.
The Swans were held to a 1-1 draw at the Liberty Stadium as Garry Monk's side remained ninth in the Premier League table.
Andy Carroll put the visitors in front late on in the first half with a fine curling effort, but Bafetimbi Gomis secured a point with his fifth goal of the campaign.
And Tom Carroll is hoping he can keep his place in the side as the on-loan Spurs man came through another 90 minutes in midfield.
"I think a draw was a fair result," he said. "Both teams could probably have won it towards the end but we're happy with a point.
"We would have been delighted with all three and we could have won it late on because we finished the game strongly.
"We believe we can beat anyone at home so once we got the equaliser we immediately thought about pushing on for a winner, but it wasn't to be.
"I thought I did well, I got on the ball and tried to make things tick. The football Swansea plays really suits me and I'm enjoying it at the moment.
"I've come here to play games so hopefully I can stay in the team now and push on."
