Gylfi confident goals will come
25th September 2015
Gylfi Sigurdsson is confident the Swans will find their form in front of goal after failing to score in their last three matches
Garry Monk's side travel to Southampton on Saturday on the back of a league defeat to Watford followed by a draw with Everton before exiting the Capital One Cup at Hull City on Tuesday.
But Sigurdsson, who is yet to open his own account this season, believes the goals will come - both individually and as a team.
"We haven't scored in the last three games but that's something we will sort out," said the Icelandic international, who ended last season with nine goals. "It's about taking our chances and getting in front when we are on top.
"Both Bafe (Gomis) and Andre (Ayew) hit the ground running this season and scored goals in the first few matches.
"For me, it has been an up and down season so far. Of course, I would have liked to have scored by now.
"Last season I went on a run without scoring for quite a few games, but that is what happens sometimes. I managed to get a lucky goal against Everton in the cup and then things fell into place.
"What is important is that I keep working hard for the team and help us earn three points.
"If I continue to work hard, the goals will come.
"In one of my first seasons at Reading it took me until November to score a league goal and I eventually ended the season with 20 goals, so I'm aware that players go through runs like this."
The Swans visit a Southampton team which is currently 16th in the Barclays Premier League table.
Ronald Koeman's side were 3-2 by Manchester United in their previous top-flight fixture, though they returned to winning ways in midweek after thumping MK Dons 6-0 in the Capital One Cup.
And Sigurdsson expects nothing less than a tough test at St Mary's.
"It's going to be a really tough game for us," said the 26-year-old. "They will be looking to move up the table while we have had a couple of results that haven't gone our way
"We have been training hard to make sure we get back on track.
"It's only been two games without a win in the league, but we're determined to get a winning run going - starting on Saturday."
