Dyer: We're in this together
15th April 2014
Flyer Nathan Dyer believes the Swans are fully focussed and ready for their final Barclays Premier League survival push.
The Swans will travel to Newcastle on Saturday searching for the win that will edge them closer to safety before facing the final three fixtures of a long campaign against Aston Villa (h), Southampton (h) and Sunderland (a).
With the Swans just three points above Fulham in the final relegation spot, a positive result in the North East will provide the perfect fillip for the run-in.
"The mood in the camp is very good," declared Dyer. "I know we lost to Chelsea (1-0) on the weekend, but the performance was good and we worked extremely hard considering we had ten men for 75 minutes. We may have even got something in the end.
"I know there has been a report in the press today about a training ground bust-up, but I think all the effort and commitment on display against Chelsea proved that we are all working for each other - and not against each other as is being suggested.
"The report has blown everything out of proportion and it is not what it seems. We are a good bunch and we work hard for each other.
"We are all fully focussed on the last four games and we owe the fans a win or two before the end of the season.
"The support they gave us against Chelsea, especially in the second-half when we needed them more than ever, was amazing. The Liberty Stadium was rocking and everyone around the world could see and hear that for themselves.
"Whatever some people may say on the outside, we know our fans are with us - and will remain with us until the very end. They are the important ones in all of this and we want to finish the job for them."
Swans Chairman, Huw Jenkins, added: "I think the commitment shown by the team when we had to play for so long with ten men against Chelsea speaks volumes.
"I think that says enough. It tells you that everybody connected with Swansea City - staff, directors, players and supporters - is 100 per cent committed to making sure that we give every ounce of effort to ensure we stay in the Premier League."
