Curtis: Fans crucial in battle for safety

12th January

Swans boss Alan Curtis believes the Jack Army will have a massive part to play in the club's battle for Barclays Premier League safety - starting with Wednesday night's crucial clash with Sunderland at the Liberty Stadium (7.45pm).
Having picked up five points from his five games in charge, Curtis is convinced that Swansea's home form will be vital in their pursuit of that magic 40-point barrier.

"It will be great to play at home again after having three successive away games,'' explained Curtis. "Our home form is going to be vital in what we achieve this season.
"Our fans will have a huge part to play in that between now and the end of the campaign. I cannot stress this enough.
"We've always had terrific backing at the Liberty and we will need the stadium packed and loud for every game between now and the arrival of Manchester City on May 15.
"The staff, players and supporters all know the importance of tomorrow night's game and everyone has their own massive part to play.
"We need the supporters as much as they need us. The fans have been brilliant for us over the years, but we need them now more than ever.
"I'm sure there will be a great atmosphere again tomorrow night under the Liberty lights because if the Jack Army can get behind us from start to finish then it could be a tricky game for Sunderland.''
With three lengthy away games in the space of a week for Sunderland fans, the North East club has not taken its full allocation of tickets.
It means more tickets for Swans fans have now been released which are still available to purchase on general sale at £35 for adults and £17.50 concessions.
Supporters can purchase tickets online, in-person at the Ticket Office or by calling 0844 815 6665 (calls cost 7pm per minute plus your standard network rate).
