Double delight for Dyer
23rd August 2014
Nathan Dyer revealed his delight at scoring the wining goal against Burnley on his 100th Premier League appearance for the Swans.
The home side followed up last weekend's win over Manchester United with success over the Clarets.
Garry Monk's men broke the deadlock midway through the first half as Dyer latched onto a Gylfi Sigurdsson pass before firing past Tom Heaton.
The victory capped off a memorable fortnight for the winger as he celebrated the birth of his first child Shea with wife Laura.
And Dyer had double joy when he learnt that his winning goal came on his century of appearances in the Premier League.
"I got told that today so it's a great achievement for me," he said. "It's always nice to score a goal, especially if it helps the team to a win and hopefully there will be many more to come.
"We wanted back-to-back wins and we achieved that so I'm pleased for everyone involved.
"You have to battle that bit harder when you face a team that plays a lot of long balls and that's what we did defensively - I thought the boys did really well.
"The work we are putting in in training in terms of what we are trying here is brilliant.
"Everything is set up and we're just trying to keep climbing and I'm more than confident that we'll get the points we need."
