Fabianski reflects on "positive steps"
20th December 2015
Lukasz Fabianski believes the Swans have taken "positive steps" forward despite being held to a 0-0 draw by West Ham.
The Swans were left frustrated by a determined Hammers defence, which made a series of key blocks to deny the hosts at the Liberty.
Fabianski, too, had to be alert to keep out the visitors with the Polish stopper's best save preventing Michail Antonio from opening the scoring.
In the end the Swans were made to share the spoils despite dominating possession and territorial advantage.
But Fabianski was in positive mood after picking up a point and a clean sheet.
"There are plenty of positives to take from today," he said.
"The way we played - we put them under pressure throughout the game and took a clean sheet, which is a boost for us.
"We were really up for it today - we wanted to win in front of the fans.
"We had a number of chances from in and around the box that were blocked.
"Jack (Cork) had a great effort that was well saved by their keeper.
"It shows we have made positives steps, but we need to take our chances in the next game in order to get a win."
He added: "We were very unlucky last week against Manchester City and unfortunate at times in front of goal today.
"But if we continue to play good football like we are, results are sure to come.
"Despite us being in the bottom three, the belief in the dressing room is that we will start to climb the league soon.
"No one is down. There is a hunger in the group to succeed and get out of the relegation zone.
"The next game against West Brom on Boxing Day at the Liberty is massive but we will be up for it."
