Dyer: The hard work is paying off
30th August 2014
Nathan Dyer insists the Swans' fine start to the season is down to the squad's hard work behind the scenes.
The winger helped Garry Monk's side to their best ever start to a Premier League season by scoring twice during Saturday's 3-0 win over West Brom.
Dyer's first came after just two minutes as he rounded goalkeeper Ben Foster before slotting home, before Wayne Routledge doubled the lead with a stunning volley from 20 yards.
He then grabbed his second - and Swansea's third - with a cool finish from Gylfi Sigurdsson's pass.
"Our start to the season has been brilliant, but we want to keep going and keep pushing forward," he said.
"We are working hard in training and it's showing on the pitch. These are a great three points and now we'll just look forward to the next match.
"It's all about the team, it's not really about me. I'm pleased that I'm scoring goals, it's what I want to do.
"The manager has put faith in me and I'm just trying to repay him. I hope it continues, but more importantly we got the three points today."
Meanwhile, Dyer hailed the impact that summer signing Gylfi Sigurdsson has made since returning to the Liberty from Spurs.
"I played with Gylfi before and it's amazing to have him in the hole," he said. "All you have to do is make runs and he'll find you. That's what I did for both goals today and I'm just taking every opportunity as it comes."
"He played just behind the striker and he has great vision - the link up play with him makes our lives easier."
