Conor Gallagher | Assists are good, but I can do better

18th February
First team

Conor Gallagher hopes to keep making strides and show Swansea City exactly what he is capable of, after a good start to his loan spell in South Wales.

The 20-year-old joined the Swans on loan from Chelsea during the January transfer window, and has started every game since his arrival.

 In just six appearances he already has three assists to his name; only Andre Ayew (five) has more for the Swans this season.

The first of those came as he teed up Rhian Brewster in the win over Wigan, and he followed that up with two more in the draw at Hull.

His clever feint and pass allowed Wayne Routledge to finish a fine team move, before he unselfishly allowed Brewster to finish with a cushioned touch just inside the box.

The latter two assists came with Gallagher impressing in the number 10 role, but the playmaker has his sights on getting even better and continuing to improve.

“I’m going to give 100 per cent in every game, but it won’t work out in every game. People will see that,” he said.

“I feel like I did quite well against Hull and got a couple of assists, but I’d still like to do better.

“I think there’s improvement there for sure. I’m looking forward to showing more of what I can do.”
