Cork: Best support of the season

6th March 2017

Swansea City captain Jack Cork saluted the Jack Army's role in Saturday's last-gasp win over Burnley as the "best support this season."
Paul Clement's side made it three home wins in a row courtesy of a dramatic victory over the Clarets in SA1.
Fernando Llorente had headed the Swans in front only for a contentious penalty - converted by Andre Gray - to level the score.
Despite being on top, the hosts then found themselves trailing after Gray's fine shot on the turn after an hour put Burnley in front.
But a memorable comeback was started by Martin Olsson, who latched onto Gylfi Sigurdsson's backheel pass before rifling his left-footed effort into the top corner.
Then Llorente sent the home support wild after he rose to head home Tom Carroll's cross in additional time to move the Swans five points clear of the relegation zone.
And Cork felt the Swans' support on Saturday was pivotal to their comeback.

"The crowd was amazing on Saturday - it was probably the best support this season," said Cork.
"They were behind us all the way and they pushed us over the line at the end.
"When you're really pushing for a winner late in the game, getting that extra bit of support can be crucial.
"Our fans definitely pushed us on at the end, and we were so grateful for that level of support."

Victory was the Swans' fifth in eight games since Clement's appointment in early January, with the team rising from bottom spot to five points clear of third-bottom Middlesbrough.
And Cork hailed the head coach's influence on the Swans.
He added: "We are more organised and we are playing aggressively with and without the ball.

"We have been like that since the start of January. Hopefully we can continue that into the final few months of the season.
"The important thing last Saturday was that we didn't allow factors that happened in the game to affect us too much.
"When a penalty decision goes against you in the manner that it did, that can see a few heads drop.
"Then we conceded against the run of play, but we remained positive and determined. You can't feel sorry for yourself because there's too much of a job to do.
"That is a great characteristic to have, and that is something we benefited from on Saturday.
"It shows the character in this team and just how much we want to stay in the Premier League."
