Dyer: We are getting stronger as a team

Nathan Dyer believes Swansea City’s best is yet to come this season after kicking off 2019 in fine style.

The Swans claimed a 4-1 victory over Reading on New Year’s Day, and backed that up with a 3-0 triumph at Aston Villa in the FA Cup.

It helped Graham Potter’s team bounce back from a run of one point from a possible nine over Christmas, and they will hope to build on their consecutive wins when they travel to face Preston on Saturday.

Dyer scored his first goal since February in the victory at Villa Park having had a regular run of games since being recalled to the side at the start of December.

And he feels the Swans’ squad is continually growing in understanding and getting stronger as the season heads into its second half.

“We wanted to gather momentum moving forward so it’s good to have back to back wins and another solid away performance,” said the winger.

“The boys’ mindset is we are in the second leg of the season and we have to be concentrated and focused on the objective. The gaffer and the coaches are there to make sure we stay on point too.

“It’s nice to get on the scoresheet but overall it’s a team game and it’s about getting stronger as a team, and we are forming those bonds and that’s what I liked about the performance.”
