Consistency is key, says Wayne
1st March 2014
Wayne Routledge insists consistency is the buzzword around the Swansea City squad as they head for the final straight of the Premier League season.
The Swans welcome Crystal Palace to the Liberty Stadium on Sunday in what is a crucial game for both sides.
Palace sit just two points and two places outside the relegation zone at the time of writing, while Garry Monk's side are four points clear of safety.
And if either side can claim all three points, it could go a long way to ensuring another season in the top-flight.
But Routledge, who goes up against his former club, believes that putting a run of results together will be key between now and May.
"There's no getting away from the fact that we've got games coming up where we can potentially pick up a lot of points," he told Jack Magazine, the official matchday programme.
"But it is down to ourselves to get the consistency in our performances in order to pick up those points.
"Consistency is going to be key, especially when there are this many games in such a short space of time.
"Everyone knows what they are going to get when they play Swansea, but it's now up to us to put that together on a regular basis."
Also in Sunday's programme, we take a look back at the 1993-94 season in our 'Swansea City Years' feature, and Jose Canas opens up about his debut season in English football.
As well as this, former Swans player Darren Pratley recalls a previous clash against Crystal Palace, and Jonjo Shelvey is placed 'Under the Spotlight'.
There is all this and much, much more so don't forget to get your hands on a copy from around the Liberty Stadium.
The 76-page magazine is a must for every Swans fan and is available around the ground and online along with Slee Stores in Plasmarl, Coggers on Wind Street and Browns Newsagent in Landore.
Don't forget, you can purchase a limited edition Swans shirt and help raise funds for SwansAid.
For this Sunday's home Barclays Premier League fixture with Crystal Palace (4.30pm), the Swans and main sponsor Goldenway (GWFX) have agreed for SwansAid to feature on the front of the players' shirts in place of the usual GWFX logo.
The match-worn shirts of the Swansea squad members on the day will be signed and auctioned off in order to raise money for SwansAid and a charity of Goldenway's choice, which is yet to be confirmed.
The shirts are available online HERE for £30 (adult sizes only) with all proceeds being divided between SwansAid and Goldenway's chosen charity.
