6th March 2016
Leroy Fer thanked the Jack Army for their support after his home debut ended with an important victory against Norwich City.
The Swans moved nine points clear of the relegation zone as Gylfi Sigurdsson's second-half strike secured a crucial 1-0 win against Alex Neil's men.
Fer - who came on as a second-half substitute - played a crucial part in the winning goal as he set up Sigurdsson with a fine reverse pass before the Icelandic international grabbed his eighth goal of the season.
And the on-loan midfielder praised the home fans following his first appearance at the Liberty against his former club.
"It was great to play at the Liberty Stadium," he said. "The support has been great and me and my family are enjoying it here - I have had good positives vibes so far.
"We knew it was an important game for us and that we had to get three points which is what we did and I think we deserved it.
"Now we have to crack on and focus on the next game and look to extend this winning run we have created.
"Bournemouth next week will be another tough game - they will want to win at home to keep to keep them away from the relegation zone - so we will have to play our best football to get a result.
"Every player wants to play football and I hope to play a big part to help Swansea in their next nine games, and when the manager needs me I'll do my best."
