Fabianski targets strong finish to campaign
12th March 2015
Lukasz Fabianski feels a strong finish to the current campaign is a must as the Swans head into their final ten games.
Garry Monk's side have already hit the 40-point mark and currently sit ninth in the Barclays Premier League despite their 3-2 defeat to Tottenham last time out.
But the team is determined to make this a season to remember as the Swans look to beat their previous highest points tally of 47 in this division.
And Fabianski insists the squad are fully focussed on ending the campaign with a run of fine results ahead of Liverpool's visit to the Liberty on Monday night.
"There are ten games to go and we all want to finish the season well and on a good run," said the Polish international, who has kept ten cleansheets in the league during his first campaign as a Swan.
"So far it's been very pleasing for me and hopefully both myself and the team can finish strongly.
"With ten games to go we are in a strong position where we can achieve something more than just being safe already. As a group and club we want to push hard and see where it can take us.
"You can clearly see there's a good group of people here, there is talent and everyone is determined. Swansea is more than just one player, we have a good group of players who are willing to give everything and you can see that every week."
On Monday night the Swans will look to avenge their 4-1 defeat to Liverpool back in December.
It proved a night to forget for Fabianski and co in front of the live cameras, with the keeper's attempted clearance cannoning off Adam Lallana and into the net to give the hosts a 2-0 lead.
And with the Sky cameras broadcasting this encounter live from SA1, Fabianski admits it's an opportunity to put that defeat behind them.
"It wasn't the best of nights but this is a game you want to play in, a second chance and an opportunity to put that right," said the 29-year-old stopper, who has made 28 appearances this season.
"We have had a good rest (from the Tottenham match) and this is a good game to bounce back in.
"We have shown with the way we put the defeat to Chelsea to bed by beating Manchester United what we can do at home.
"Liverpool are on a good run and playing well but hopefully we can compete against them and take something from it."
