Dyer: The wins will come
28th March 2014
Nathan Dyer reflected on a "tough" few weeks for Swansea City - but believes it is only a matter of time before the tide turns in their favour.
Two weeks have passed since the Swans last lined up at the Liberty in a disappointing defeat against West Brom.
Despite taking an early lead through Roland Lamah's goal, the visitors roared back in the second half to turn the game on its head and leave the hosts licking their wounds.
That defeat left Garry Monk's side just four points clear of the drop zone and came on the back of a home draw against Crystal Palace.
But despite not having won in nine games in all competitions, Dyer believes the wins are just around the corner.
"It's been tough recently," he said. "They (Crystal Palace and West Brom) were two games that we thought we could come away with the points, but it wasn't meant to be.
"I thought we controlled the first half against West Brom but we kind of crumbled in the second period. That was unlike us and we now have to pick ourselves up and go again.
"Playing those teams, it's always going to be a battle. We need to realise that that is what it is going to be like.
"It's hard when you play well and lose or draw, and it is hard to take. I thought we battled hard against Crystal Palace and were unlucky not to win that game.
"But we know what we're capable of and just need to keep battling and eventually our fortunes will turn."
