Fabianski expects positive reaction

13th September

Lukasz Fabianski insists the Swans will bounce back from their disappointing 1-0 defeat at Watford on Saturday.

Garry Monk's side suffered their first loss of the season at Vicarage Road, courtesy of Odion Ighalo's 59th-minute strike.

The Nigerian striker struck home from eight yards following Troy Deeney's header across goal as the Swans were unable to build on their positive start to the campaign.

But while acknowledging his disappointment in their performance, Fabianski believes Monk's men will respond to the setback when they host Everton at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

"It should be a wake-up call," said the Polish international. "You can't afford to have an off day in this league. Every single game is very competitive.

"It was a very disappointing performance and result. 

"We wanted to build on our recent results, but on Saturday we didn't play the way we usually play.

"We expected them to try and put pressure on us, but we didn't cope well enough with that.

"We didn't keep the ball as well as we usually do, and we struggled to create chances.

"We need to prepare well for the next game because it will be a big one. 

"The home game against Everton is a great chance for us to bounce back. We will work hard and be ready to respond.

"We can promise the supporters that we will fight hard for the result against Everton."
