Curtis calls for repeat performance

18th December 2015

Alan Curtis has called on the players to replicate last weekend's improved performance ahead of Sunday's clash against West Ham at the Liberty (4pm).
The Swans return to home soil following a dramatic defeat at the Etihad Stadium last time out, as Curtis took charge following the departure of Garry Monk.
After rescuing what looked like a deserved point against Manchester City, the Swans were undone by a last-gasp strike from Yaya Toure as they slipped to an agonising defeat.
They will now be hoping for more of the same against a West Ham side who are also searching for a return to winning ways. 
The Hammers - who have already beaten the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea this season - have won just once in their last seven league outings.

"It was a really good performance last week," said Curtis, who will continue to be in charge for Sunday's game.
"The big disappointment was obviously losing the game because I felt we deserved a lot better than that.
"The players have worked extremely hard this week and they have bought into what we have asked of them. They showed that last weekend and we now have to repeat that - that is the standard we have to set ourselves.
"If we can keep that up then hopefully the results will follow."
Curtis added: "It's my job and the staff's job to carry on regardless. The important thing is that we get the right man in and if it takes a bit longer then so be it.
"We find ourselves at the wrong end of the table and it's an important decision. We've got to trust Huw (Jenkins) and the board that the next decision will be the right one."
Meanwhile, Curtis confirmed left-back Franck Tabanou (thigh) and striker Eder (ankle) will remain unavailable for the next couple of weeks due to injuries.
